Tourism Awards Open for Entry


The 2020/21 Devon Tourism Awards are open for entry and businesses in Devon (including North, East, South, West, English Riviera and Plymouth) 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. Deborah Heather, Director of headline sponsors Quality in Tourism, says: “Quality in Tourism is proud to be the headline sponsor of Devon Tourism Awards in 2020. This renowned British favourite keep surpassing itself in terms of the provision of tourism product. We are delighted to support amazing operators and responsible businesses to succeed and be tourism trailblazers.”

Awards organiser Robin Barker says: “It’s always great to hear from entrants what a positive change the awards 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.
