$25k up for grabs in Asia tourism fund

Asia is the future – you've heard it enough times. And if you're in the tourism biz, Auckland Airport's new Tourism Asia Marketing Fund could be just your ticket. 

The best 12-month Asia marketing/business strategy submission will receive $25,000 in marketing support and business development assistance – including a development trip to Asia.
The judges – members of Auckland Airport’s Aeronautical Commercial team – will be looking for companies that have viable marketing strategies, strong forward planning, can demonstrate innovation and an understanding of the target market and that are either taking a multi-channel approach or in-depth thinking in one channel.
Written submissions can be no more than 1,000 words and need to be received by 5pm July 20. The winner will be announced on July 30.
