South West Tourism Awards 2018
This year’s awards have attracted 645 entries, 6% more than in 2016. This includes 205 in the Devon Tourism Awards,180 in Cornwall, 123 in Dorset and 111 in Bristol, Bath & Somerset.
The awards started in 2013 and since that time the number of entries in the South West region has doubled. An award is recognition of excellence. Winners automatically enter the national Visit England awards.
Winners will compete at a national level with tourism businesses from other parts of the country. Awards organiser Robin Barker said:
We work hard each year to develop the awards to keep them relevant to the fast-changing world of tourism and are always delighted when our efforts are rewarded with increased entries.
One of our aims is for the South West to maintain its position as England’s top region for quality, winning more awards than any other region in the national VisitEngland awards; we have achieved this for the last five years and with the quality of this year’s entrants will be endeavouring to do so again.
