Awards entry deadline postponed to 27 September

With immediate effect we have postponed the deadline for entering this year's Tourism Awards to midnight on 27 September 2020.

The disruption to tourism businesses from the new 'Rule of 6' and other external factors have led to this extension, which follows extensive industry liaison.  We hope it gives everyone the extra time they need, if you’ve any questions please get in touch.


The 2020/21 Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards are open for entry and businesses are encouraged to start your submissions without delay.

Last year’s entrants summed up the benefits of entering the awards as increasing bookings, generating PR, helping with staff morale, retention and recruitment as well as getting free feedback on how their business could be improved. Watch the short video here to see what they say.

The awards are free to enter as they are supported by many sponsors. Clare Bushby, Managing Director of headline sponsors Clockwork Marketing says: “At Clockwork Marketing we’ve boosted hospitality bookings for 25 years, throughout the South West, and we’re proud to be headline sponsors of the Bristol, Bath, and Somerset Tourism Awards. What excites us, is helping hospitality businesses continue to thrive, both urban and rural, in one of the most historically rich and beautiful parts of our country. Here’s to the future.”

Awards organiser Nell Barrington says: “Businesses have eight weeks to enter this years awards and I really hope that all those great businesses across Bristol, Bath and Somerset will take this opportunity to enter.  Having spoken to last years winners it was great to hear what a positive change winning an award can bring.  To help everyone submit their best entry we are running a series of workshops across the South West and I look forward to seeing many businesses there.  Details can be found here.”
