House of Travel Christchurch City took home 14 top awards, including Best Performing House of Travel Store 2018 and Consultant of the Year at the House of Travel Group’s conference in Auckland late last month.
House of Travel Christchurch City’s Belinda Fifield was crowned top House of Travel Consultant for New Zealand. She was also awarded Overall Customer Champion, and named a top consultant for the sixth year in a row.
The Christchurch City team received the Singapore Airlines Outstanding Performance Award, and the Air New Zealand Top Retail Store (South Island) Award.
Belinda Fifield and Sarah Henderson were recognised with Gold Awards, and Sarah was inducted into the Hall of Fame with the Legend of House of Travel Awards. Silver Awards also went to Sue Storey, Sharon Hall and Siobhan Bull.
HOT Events, part of House of Travel Christchurch City, received the Gold Group Sales Award, winning Group of the Year for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
With the Christchurch Joint Marketing team, Christchurch City also received their Local Area Marketing Award for Botanic D’Lights Christchurch, which raised close to $75,000 for Hospice New Zealand in August last year.
House of Travel Christchurch City managing director David Williams says winning Best Performing Store after a 10 year break was a testament to their success in diversifying the business.
“This is a changing industry and we are changing with it,” he said. “Our success is down to collaboration and a team effort from our 26 dedicated team members.”
