Nominations are now open for the county's biggest tourism awards.
The Devon Tourism Awards are encouraging businesses far and wide to enter the 2019/20 edition.
After 651 entries last year, the organisers have taken feedback and introduced new categories such as ‘Wedding Venue of the Year’ whilst also making changes to existing categories.
To help encourage more entrants, the opening date for nominations has been brought forward and made the forms shorter.
75% of the survey respondents from last year said that the awards helped improve the quality of their business.
Organiser of the awards Robin Barker says: “The 2018/19 Awards broke all records, and importantly showed further progress in converting them into a year-round quality development programme, rather than merely ‘an event.’ Like the businesses we serve, we must innovate and change too, hence the very many developments we’re making this year and I’d like to thank entrants, our 50+ sponsors and judges for their active support.”
The final deadline to enter the awards is April 30 and businesses are encouraged to start preparing as soon as possible.
Entry is free and full details can be found at www.devontourismawards.org.uk.
