It’s the cruise industry’s ‘night of nights’ and to celebrate another big year of cruising, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia is inviting Australian and New Zealand member agents to submit nominations for the 17th Cruise Industry Awards dinner.

A total of 20 awards will be presented including Cruise Agency of the Year, Online Agency of the Year, Homebased/Mobile Agent of the Year (Broker in NZ), Cruise Consultant of the Year, the Rising Star award and the latest entrant to the CLIA Hall of Fame, as nominated by CLIA members.

CLIA Australasia & Asia Managing Director Joel Katz said the awards night was growing in line with the booming local cruise industry and the 2018 event was not to be missed.

“The Cruise Industry Awards, now affectionately known as ‘the CLIAs’, is the biggest night on the cruise calendar. It’s a wonderful event where the cruise industry recognises and rewards the outstanding achievements of agents who have been making waves in the industry. To ensure no hard work goes unrewarded, we want to see all our member agents there enjoying their moment in the spotlight so make sure you head online and submit your nomination now,” Mr Katz said.

CLIA member agents can submit nominations online at for the following categories:

  • Agent Promotion of the Year Australia / New Zealand
  • Network Promotion of the Year (Australasia)
  • Plan a Cruise Month Agency Award (Australasia)

Nominations will be judged by an independent panel based on a selection of set criteria as specified on the CLIA website.

Submissions for the awards close on Friday December 22, 2017.

The 17th annual Cruise Industry Awards will be held on Saturday February 24, 2017 at the Star Event Centre Sydney. Tickets will go on sale next week.
