Shine On Awards

Shine On Awards

Do your staff excel at customer service? The Shine On Awards is your chance to recognize their dedication!

Employers, managers, and anyone who oversees staff in the tourism sector are encouraged to nominate employees who consistently go above and beyond and deliver positive and welcoming service to visitors.

The Shine On Awards have been developed to recognize excellent service in all areas of front line hospitality and are awarded at an annual gala to celebrate Ottawa’s visitor economy. Nominations for award categories are compiled throughout the year and judged by a panel of industry experts to determine winners in each category, as well as a final Shine On Award winner. Winners receive prizes, and the overall winner receives a special grand prize.
