The award for ‘Outstanding Employer of Choice’ was handed to the online wholesaler at the 2018 NSW Business Chamber State Business Awards this week in front of some 920 attendees.


Excite Holidays received the award for the various strategies and initiatives implemnted over the last year to stimulate and support its staff members.
