Florida’s Paradise Coast 2018 Tourism Star Awards

Nominate Your Stars!


You’re invited to come aboard as we celebrate “all the hands-on deck” who help our visitors fall in love with our destination.  Join us at the 16th Annual Tourism Star Awards “Love Boat” Luncheon!

The Tourism Star Awards luncheon will take place at JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort on August 30, 2018. Florida's Paradise Coast is inviting you to “Come Aboard”, and recognize and celebrate the thousands of dedicated tourism professionals who provide exceptional customer service and help our visitors create special memories with their families and friends through their time in our destination. Our visitors continue to have one of the highest satisfaction ratings in the state of Florida, and our visitor spending continues to rise.

To nominate individuals for this year's Paradise Coast Tourism Star Awards, first review the Tourism Star Awards Rules & Guidelines (Link Here). Please review the rules and guidelines before you begin.

You will also benefit from reading these Tips for Nominators to help you write the best possible nomination submission (Link Here). Once you’ve done that, choose a category from the menu on the right.

Read the qualifications for each category to make sure you are submitting your nominee to the most appropriate category. Please fill out the form and provide all the required information to make sure your nomination is given proper consideration. Each nomination must be a unique write up. Duplicate nominations or nominations from previous years will not be accepted. Please include at least three specific examples about what makes this person outstanding and how they encourage visitors to have positive experiences in the destination.

You may also attach Word or PDF documents to support your entry. For instance, if you have five exceptional guest letters about the nominee, you could put all of them into one PDF document to attach.

This year we are also again asking for a high-resolution head shot-style photo of each nominee so that all nominees can be represented in the event presentation. Please be sure to upload an in-focus photo that shows the smiling face of your nominee.

The deadline date for nominations is Friday, July 27, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.

Come aboard, we are expecting you,

Your CVB Staff.
