Quamark is the official quality accreditation programme for New Zealand accommodation, tourist attractions, activities, transportation and inbound tour operators.
The Tourism Export Council is committed to Qualmark and quality standards!
All Full members must be Qualmark endorsed with our own set of criteria and this includes using at least 75% of suppliers who are also Qualmark endorsed in the various categories. In March 2012 an exclusive ‘tourism export council inbound tour operator’ mark was developed and non TECNZ members are not able to promote themselves off-shore with Tourism New Zealand as a ‘qualmark endorsed inbound tour operator’. We see this new endorsement as a significant marketing advantage over other IBO’s who are not members but operating in New Zealand.
Those that have completed the process have the Qualmark Endorsed Inbound Tour Operator logo included in their listing.
The Memorandum of Understanding between the Tourism Export Council of New Zealand (previously ITOC) and Qualmark was signed in June 2005 at the TRENZ tradeshow in Christchurch.
