TOUR OF THE YEAR
This award recognises both the production company’s outstanding commitment to touring and the tour coordinator’s delivery of exceptional touring services associated with that touring company (where applicable). It rewards the commitment to form strong partnerships and to work collaboratively to develop audiences and enrich the cultural lives of all Australians.
