The Visit Worcestershire team are putting together the final preparations for their first-ever sold out Tourism Awards at Stanbrook Abbey Hotel on 11th March.

In partnership with Visit England, the very best of Worcestershire will be celebrated after a very tough two years for the industry.

After an extensive judging process towards the end of 2021, 37 finalists have been chosen across 12 different awards.

Visit Worcestershire were delighted with the response with over 100 entries from Worcestershire businesses, which made shortlisting very difficult.

Dominique Bray, Business Growth Manager for Visit Worcestershire said “We were delighted with the number of quality tourism entries we received, especially during a period when many businesses had hit rock bottom.

After an extensive two round process and a strict process laid out by Visit England, the judging panel found it very difficult indeed to narrow down to a shortlist.

All those who made it to the finals should be very proud of the achievement and how far they have come in the process”.
