We have already logged 170+ entries into this year’s Cornwall Tourism Awards, meaning we are anticipating another tough summer of excellence judging!

There are 4 categories with a later deadline of 22nd August and we’d encourage you to consider an additional entry into one or more of these – especially those which are open to all business types.  They are:

  • International/Inbound Visitor Experience of the Year - All sectors of the tourism industry should apply if they can demonstrate that they deliver an outstanding experience for visitors from overseas (eg Attractions, Hotels, Parks etc)
  • Customer Service Superstar award, which recognises individuals or teams that regularly go above & beyond, offering exceptional service to visitors
  • The Tourism Event & Festival award, for events and festivals that attract visitors to the area and enhance their stay
  • Outstanding Contribution to Tourism, for an individual, group or organisation that has made a significant contribution to the tourism industry in the area

If you have already entered any of the above, please feel free to revise your entry if you wish at any time before the deadline.

Mark Warnes, property and portfolio director at headline sponsors Hoseasons, says “We are very proud to be supporting these awards and looking forward to the nominations coming in. The awards are a brilliant way to recognise the commitment and achievements of businesses across the county and celebrate all they do to drive tourism to the area. It is so important to reward the time, energy and money everyone invests in their offer and we’re pleased to be able to be a part of that for another year.” 

Organiser of the awards Robin Barker says: “Feedback from last year’s entrants tells us that the Awards are increasing in their relevance and our suggestions for the future met with an enthusiastic response.  We are therefore making a few changes, with perhaps the biggest being that after 6 fabulous years at Newquay’s Headland Hotel, this year’s Awards event will be in Truro Cathedral on 1st November.  We are looking forward to it already.”

Entry is free, the programmes being funded by a range of sponsors and partners, and all entrants receive feedback.
