The 2022/23 Cornwall Tourism Awards are now open for entry and businesses from across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are invited to submit their entries.
The awards, now in their 21st year, cover both Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, 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, said: “It’s our 21st, let’s have record entries and make this a year to remember!”
Malcolm Bell of Visit Cornwall added: “2021 was another crazy year with ups and downs and providers showed they were more than up to the challenges – no more so than the excellent businesses recognised through the Cornwall Tourism Awards.”
