Gold Coast-based Resort and Club Management company, Classic Holidays, has been recognised for its 35 year contribution to the Gold Coast tourism industry.

The accolade was presented to Classic Holidays by Mayor Tom Tate during the Gold Coast Tourism Annual General Meeting held at the QT Gold Coast in Surfers Paradise in November.

Classic Holidays, CEO Ramy Filo, said the company was proud to have been involved with Gold Coast Tourism for over three decades. “Classic Holidays started in 1978, so we have been part of the development of this iconic industry since the early days,” said Mr Filo.

“During that time we have grown from a small Gold Coast company into a global operation now responsible for the employment of over 1,000 staff, with our Head Office located in Varsity Lakes and 7 resort properties under management on the Gold Coast.

“As the timeshare capital of Australia, we have long shared Gold Coast Tourism’s vision for promoting the Gold Coast as a favourite holiday destination for Australians and people all over the world.

“It’s a fantastic industry to be a part of, and we thank Gold Coast Tourism for this honour.”

Classic Holidays joined wildlife attraction, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, in receiving a 35 Year Recognition Award at the AGM.
