Tourism Awards Open for Entry


The 2020/21 Cornwall Tourism Awards are open for entry and businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly 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: “Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are outstanding destinations, attracting millions of tourists each year. Tourism operators here are world leading in their pursuit of continuous improvement, setting the pace of innovation, customer service and best practice. Quality in Tourism are delighted to be headline sponsor for the Cornwall Tourism Awards once again and wish everyone the best of luck.”

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.  Our top tip is to start preparing now, giving yourself time to consider all categories and liaising with colleagues before clicking the SUBMIT button.”

Head of VisitCornwall, Malcolm Bell, says: “The Cornwall Tourism awards enable the best from our Cornish tourism offer to showcase how good they really are and, most importantly for the owners, managers and staff to gain the recognition they so rightly deserve.”

All entries must be submitted online by 26 April but as Easter is coming up it is recommended that businesses get them in as soon as possible.

To start the process please take a look at the categories – then follow our tips at entering awards, there’s even a suggested schedule for you to follow.  Then follow the link to online entry here
