The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Inspiring travel content creators and tourism entrepreneurs are set to be given recognition by non-profit organization Go Negosyo as it continues its search for nominees for this year’s Inspiring Tourism Entrepreneurs Awards. The awarding will be held during the Tourism Summit to be held on May 13 at the Ayala Malls Manila Bay in Parañaque City.

The Tourism Summit is held in cooperation with the Department of Tourism. Go Negosyo advocates for the development of the country’s micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) through various programs and projects with the government and the private sector.

Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion said that tourism can be a major contributor to the country’s rise to middle-income status. “The Philippines already has so much to offer in terms of tourist attractions, friendly people, delicious cuisine, and a rich culture,” he said. “Imagine what more we can do when we scale up the MSMEs in the travel sector and leverage the strength of social media to promote the country?”

The categories for the Inspiring Tourism Entrepreneurs Awards are Accommodations and Tours, Food and Retail, Sustainable Ecotourism, and Unique Attractions. A special award will be given to inspiring travel content creators who have made significant contributions to Philippine tourism through their social media content. Details and application forms are available on Go Negosyo’s social media pages on Facebook and Instagram.

To qualify for the Inspiring Tourism Entrepreneur award, the nominee’s enterprise must have been in operation for at least two years and have an inspiring entrepreneurial and success story that uplifts the community. The Special Award for travel content creators, meanwhile, is open to travel content creators and bloggers of all nationalities who currently reside in the Philippines, have been creating travel content for at least one year, and have promoted the country’s tourism attractions in their content. In both categories, the awardees must be personally able to receive the award during the ceremonies to be held at the Tourism Summit in May.
