Tourism businesses from across Cumbria are competing for the prestigious Cumbria Tourism Awards. Now in their 15th year, the awards celebrate the very best of what Cumbria has to offer and the talented individuals behind them. Cumbria’s tourism businesses drive a visitor economy worth over £2.6 billion, making their achievements, hard work and dedication worthy of recognition.
There are 17 award categories in total which cover the huge range and diversity of Cumbria’s tourism industry. The judges will be looking for tourism businesses that demonstrate excellence and innovation across their products and services.
The winners will be announced at a glamorous black tie ‘Oscars’ style awards ceremony on Wednesday 21st June at Cartmel Racecourse.
Rachel Tyson, Head of Marketing & Sales at Cumbria Tourism says:
“We are delighted that the Cumbria Tourism Awards get bigger and better each year with categories to suit all tourism businesses. Now in their 15th year they continue to celebrate the very best of tourism in the county.
Susan Dickson from Parkcliffe Caravan and Camping Estate said;
“Winning Holiday Park of the Year at the 2016 Cumbria Tourism Awards was a huge morale boost for our hardworking team, it’s recognition of the quality service they provide and it highlights to us that the business is continuously moving in the right direction. Awards like these motivate us all to do better, continue to provide the best service possible and go the extra mile.”
For the third year Chris Brammall and his team of award-winning architectural and sculptural metalworkers from Ulverston will again create an iconic and bespoke work of art to reward the achievements of the county’s tourism operators.
