More About the South West Tourism Awards
The South West Tourism Awards cover the whole of the South West, including Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Businesses in Cornwall, Dorset, Devon, Bristol, Bath and Somerset are welcome to enter in their regional category. The categories are independent, but winners from the county awards are fast-tracked into the South West awards and the majority of South West winners are submitted to the national VisitEngland awards.
2018 sees several changes, reflecting the ever-changing nature of tourism. There’s a new category for Tourism Innovation and New Business, the former Sustainable Tourism category has been widened to consider employment and the use of plastics, and there are many criteria changes. The biggest change is the earlier launch date, responding to industry requests, giving businesses two months to enter.
You Could Be a Winner in 2018
This year’s South West Tourism Awards are now open for entries and businesses are invited to enter by the deadline of midnight on May 22. If you run a business and would like to enter, simply download an entry formfrom the South West Tourism Awards website. There’s lots of helpful information on the Hints and Tips page, which we recommend reading before you fill it out. Once you have submitted your entry form, an independent panel of judges made up of past winners, industry leaders and experts in their field will begin the rigorous assessment process. Good luck if you decide to enter and we hope to see you at the South West Tourism Awards later this year!
