Waihi i-SITE receives 2015 Innovation Award

The Waihi i-SITE was announced as a winner of a 2015 Innovation Award at the i-SITE New Zealand annual conference Awards Dinner in Whangarei last week. 

The Innovation Award is presented to i-SITEs that demonstrate innovation in the key strategies outlined in the National Strategic Plan. This includes showing innovation in marketing, productivity, membership and value in a one year period. 

It has been just less than one year since the Waihi i-SITE was opened in conjunction with the new Gold Discovery Centre. The co-location of these complimentary operations makes very good business sense in today’s business environment. 

The judges commended the Waihi i-SITE on its new approach to delivering visitor information and services. The excellent visual and itinerary based displays demonstrate innovated design, helping visitors to get a really good understanding of all the great things there are to do in the Waihi area and the surrounding region. 

Nikki Skelton, Waihi i-SITE Customer Services Manager attended the conference and was delighted to receive the award. Nikki said “It was a bit of surprise to hear our name being announced for an award, particularly as we are one of the newer i-SITE’s in the country but I was very proud to be able to collect this award on behalf of the team” 

Eddie Morrow, General Manager of the Gold Discovery Centre and Waihi i-SITE said “A significant amount of time went into developing and designing a new style of information delivery to meet the needs of today’s travellers and visitors. It’s really great to get this external validation that Waihi is at the leading edge of visitor information and services delivery” 

The Waihi i-SITE is open 7 days a week and located at the top of Waihi’s main street.
