UniSA’s School of Management was one of just four inductees into the Tourism Hall of Fame, which requires winning the same category three years in a row.
“This is a great honour for the School and UniSA and reflects the quality of our tourism programs, our teaching team and our professional staff,” Prof Benson says.
“We’re delighted to have won the Tourism Education and Training category for three consecutive years and to now enter the Tourism Hall of Fame is a great honour.”
The South Australian Tourism Awards are one of the state’s most recognised and prestigious industry awards.
Other Hall of Fame inductees were the Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre near Rowland Flat (tourist attraction), Adelaide Convention Centre (meetings and business tourism), and Unforgettable Houseboats (unique accommodation).
