Nominate a Colleague for the 2015 Alto Ambassador Award

Travel Alberta’s Alto Ambassador Award recognizes an exceptional Albertan each year who has made an outstanding contribution to our tourism industry. 

Nominate one of your industry peers for the Alto Ambassador Award today! The deadline for nominations for the 2015 Alto Ambassador is May 29, 2015.

The Alto Ambassador award will be presented at the Alto Awards gala, October 26, 2015 in conjunction with the 15th annual Travel Alberta Industry Conference in Banff, October 25-27, 2015. Alto Awards in nine other categories will also be presented. 

“This award honours individuals who go ‘above and beyond’ to build Alberta’s tourism industry,” says Colleen Reed, Travel Alberta’s Director, Industry Events and Engagement. “Alto Ambassadors are champions of the tourism industry who inspire us all to do great things.” 

The Alto Ambassador award was created in 2001. The program is industry-driven; nominations must come from a colleague in the Alberta tourism industry. Once submissions are received and evaluated, the Ambassador is chosen by a committee of industry volunteers and endorsed by the Alberta Strategic Tourism Council.

Ambassadors have come from all over the province and from a variety of tourism industry sectors. What they have in common is their leadership in moving Alberta’s tourism industry forward. The publicity and prestige of the award is not only a personal honour, as it also shines a spotlight on the tourism activities in the winner’s region.
