Northeast England Tourism Awards 2014

North East England Tourism Awards 2014

The North East England Tourism Awards play a major role in showcasing the fantastic range of high quality experiences we offer for visitors here in the North East, no matter what their budget. The Awards have had a hugely positive impact on tourism in the North East providing a benchmark for all businesses to aspire to and delivering significant benefit to shortlisted and winning businesses alike. By simply taking part you could improve your business performance in terms of turnover, profitability, quality, sustainability, staff morale and customer satisfaction.

Winners at the North East England Tourism Awards have the chance to compete on a national stage against those winners from England’s other regions at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence in 2015. Successful North East businesses in 2014 included Seafield Caravan Park and St Cuthbert's House who both went on from our regional awards to win Gold nationally to be officially recognised as the best in the country.
