Outstanding Award for Services for Tourism

We are delighted to announce that we have just been awarded Outstanding in Awards Trust Mark by the Independent Awards Standards Council - for the 2nd year running.  

The Award has 18 criteria covering independence of judging, process transparency, feedback to entrants and more - with accreditation involving verification checks with both entrants and judges.  

This is what one of the entrants told the assessors: “I must say that the whole process is excellent. I have been in other awards and this is definitely the best by a long way. Not only are they extremely efficient and organised, they go beyond the expected with lots of very useful feedback which has made my business excel even more.  Being in these awards has boosted my business so much. I really can't recommend them enough.”

We really couldn’t have asked for any better feedback than this – reflecting our passion for doing our very best for tourism, the region – and our sponsors and partners.
