If the tourism industry is to achieve success in the increasingly competitive national and international markets, all sectors of the industry must develop quality products and services that will meet the expectations of their customers. 

Businesses endorsed by tourism accreditation programs benefit from increased credibility, visibility and competitiveness. Accreditation programs help them focus on aspects of their business that provide resilience through leaner times, exploit better periods, and further develop consistency of quality.









Governed by the Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC), the new 'Quality Tourism' brandmark is a symbol of excellence for businesses participating in its framework of quality tourism programs.

This framework includes established and well respected programs such as the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program, Star Ratings, and the Australian Tourism Awards. Any business that has met the minimum accreditation standard will have access to the Quality Tourism Accredited Business brandmark.
