Currituck Travel & Tourism was recently honored with two tourism achievement awards at the 2019 NCTIA Tourism Leadership Conference in September.

The purpose of the Tourism Achievement Awards is to honor and showcase innovation, best practices, creativity and the results accomplished through the travel industry’s marketing efforts. Currituck Travel & Tourism took home a platinum award in the Leisure Marketing category for its four distinct “Find Your…in Corolla” video commercials and also took home a gold award in the Community Stakeholder Communication category for its video on the preservation of the historic working boats of Currituck and the building of the Historic Currituck Maritime Museum.

Although Currituck is a small county, our tourism budget requires us to compete with the larger destinations in North Carolina such as Asheville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Wilmington and Winston-Salem.  With this caliber of competition, we are doubly proud of these awards. 

But most importantly, these honors could not have been achieved without the support of our residents and tourism partners and businesses that make this such a great destination to promote.  Thank you, Currituck!
