Tourism Langley received another honour as they were recognized with the 2012 DMO Professional Excellence Award.

The award recognizes excellence and innovation with the tourism industry and represents the highest accolades for tourism and hospitality operators and associations.

Sponsored by Simpleview Inc. in partnership with the Tourism Industry Association of BC (TIABC), the BC DMO Professional Excellence Award recognizes a community Destination Marketing Organization for their commitment and overall performance to the tourism industry in British Columbia.

“It is truly amazing what Tourism Langley has accomplished in a short period of time and reflects the dedication and professionalism of its leadership,” said Richard Vaughan, the vice-president of sales and marketing for Simpleview.

“Destination marketing can be a great economic engine for every community and Tourism Langley has allocated its resources well.”

“This award is momentous, as it celebrates DMOs and our peers who have contributed to the advancement of tourism in their community and signifies the contributions and relevance of the community destination marketing organization in the advancement of tourism in our province” stated Barrett Fisher, chair of the BC DMO Association.

To be considered for the recognition, a community destination marketing organization must demonstrate leadership, show professionalism and best practices and have provided measureable value to the local and provincial tourism industry.

Tourism Langley was recognized for its efforts and achievements in the following areas: innovation, industry advancement and involvement, accreditation, performance, accountability and competitiveness.

Township Councillor Bev Dornan accepted the award on behalf of the Tourism Langley board of directors.
