TOURISM AWARDS OPEN FOR ENTRY

The 2022/23 Devon Tourism Awards are now open for entry and businesses from across Devon are invited to submit entries.

The Awards cover the whole of Devon, including Plymouth and the English Riviera, offering businesses the chance to win not just locally, but to progress on to the regional South West awards and – for matching categories – the national VisitEngland awards.

The launch comes fresh from the conclusion of the 2021/22 awards, held in what was an extraordinary period for tourism, hospitality and the world. Entrants listed the benefits of entering as increasing bookings, generating PR, free feedback and the boost they give to staff morale and recruitment.

The 2022/23 awards cover the full range of tourism-related businesses including pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as accommodation, wedding and business venues, attractions, events and experiences. There is an award for Innovation and Resilience, as well as opportunities to submit entries for unsung heroes, new businesses, dog friendly, accessibility, wildlife friendly and sustainability.

Awards organiser Robin Barker says: “The Devon Tourism Awards have been a real success story since they launched 13 years ago!  Let’s have record entries and make this a year to remember!”

The awards are free to enter being supported by many sponsors and partners. Deborah Heather, Director of headline sponsors Quality in Tourism, says: “The incredible resilience and quality of the product in Devon continues to inspire and lead with innovation and excellence. Quality in Tourism is therefore delighted to continue to be Headline Sponsor for the Devon awards for 2022/23, and we wish everyone a wonderful 2022 season.”

A series of free online workshops is planned to help entrants, the first being on 12 May. All entries must be submitted online by midnight on Sunday 19 June but it is recommended that businesses plan ahead and start as soon as possible.  This deadline will not be extended.

Thank you to all our sponsors and partners who support these awards.  If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
