DEVON TOURISM AWARDS NOW OPEN FOR ENTRY CLOSING DATE - 30 APRIL 2019
We are delighted to announce that the Devon Tourism Awards 2019 are open for entry and would like to invite you to enter as soon as possible. Please do share this news with your colleagues and neighbouring tourism businesses.
These awards are free to enter and in surveys over 75% of respondents tell Visit Devon that entering helps raise the quality of their business and can attract additional publicity.
This year sees many changes with shorter entry forms (just four questions) which must be submitted online. To assist businesses, Visit Devon have put practice forms on the website so that you and your teams can download them and draft your answers before online submission.
There is also a new category for Wedding Venue of the Year.
If you enter by 29 March and score over 75% you will be guaranteed a judging visit (if entering in a category where Visit Devon carry out visits). Past entrants have fed back to Visit Devon that they prefer to be judged on ‘the real thing’ rather than how well entry forms are completed and this will enable this to happen.
The final closing date is 30 April and to be fair to early entrants and the volunteer judges Visit Devon will not extend the deadlines except in exceptional circumstances and for selected categories.
Visit Devon will be running a series of excellence workshops again this year, starting in mid-March to help entrants and will be in touch soon with more information. Good luck!
