Beautiful South Tourism Award finalists are announced!

The South East’s leading tourism businesses have been chosen for the finals of the Beautiful South Tourism Awards. This year saw over 120 entries from the cream of the tourism industry in the South East, with 61 businesses selected as finalists. All will be in suspense until the ceremony when they will learn whether they have won Gold, Silver or Bronze. The winners will be announced at The Grand Hotel in Brighton on Thursday 4th of December. Winners in matching categories will be invited to represent the South East in the National VisitEngland Awards in 2015. Peter Colling, Managing Director of Tourism South East, said “Every year the Beautiful South Awards are a reminder of the amazing wealth of fantastic tourism businesses and experiences South East of England has to offer. And this year the overall standard of entries was higher than ever making it extremely tough for the judges. Some very fine businesses narrowly missed the cut and the finalists truly are the best of the best.” Shepherd Neame Chief Executive, Jonathan Neame said: “We have a diverse estate of 347 pubs and hotels across London and the South East, along with an award-winning Visitor Centre, so we are aware of the important role tourism plays not only in our business but for the South East economy as a whole. We are delighted to support the industry and recognise outstanding commitment to quality, innovation and service, by sponsoring this year’s Beautiful South Awards.” Lynda Hall, Training and Quality Manager for Quality in Tourism, has been part of the judging panel for the awards and is looking forward to meeting all of the finalists on the night!
