This year QTIC received a significant increase in the number of applications received from secondary school students for the 2016 Salute to Excellence Awards, which recognises and celebrates high achievers training in tourism or hospitality throughout Queensland.

QTIC recognises these awards as an opportunity to profile the tourism and hospitality industry and encourage graduating students into the industry which is currently experiencing buoyant growth and diverse opportunities for school leavers seeking pathways for continued learning.
