Cumbria Tourism Awards 2019
In association with United Utilities
The Cumbria Tourism Awards are open for entries. There are some exciting changes for 2019 including new categories and simplified entry forms and eligibility criteria.
The deadline for entries is Friday 22nd March at 5pm.
The Cumbria Tourism Awards celebrate the best Cumbria has to offer and are now in their 17th year. Cumbria’s tourism businesses, and the talented individuals behind them, drive a visitor economy worth £2.9 billion. Their achievements, hard work and dedication are worthy of recognition.
Cumbria offers ever increasing levels of quality and service to our annual visitors, which in 2017 exceeded 47 million, and the Cumbria Tourism Awards recognise those businesses offering excellence and innovation in their product, service, welcome, marketing and sustainable practices.
Winners for many of the categories from the Cumbria Tourism Awards will go on to represent the county at the Visit England Awards for Excellence in 2020. Wedding Venue of the Year, Outstanding Contribution to Excellence, and our new category, Makers and Producers Award are run at a Cumbria level only. Cumbria has seen a great deal of success at national level over the years, resulting in fantastic media promotion for the winning businesses and Cumbria – the Lake District as a quality visitor destination.
This year, there are 16 award categories which celebrate the huge range and diversity of Cumbria’s tourism industry.
The closing date for entries is 5pm on Friday 22nd March 2019.
