If I win a south east wales tourism award will I automatically go forward to the national visit wales awards?
Yes, if your business meets all the Visit Wales eligibility e.g. accommodation requires a valid grade from either Visit Wales or the AA.
will site visits be undertaken?
Not automatically, no.
If there is a split decision amongst our judges then mystery site visits may be undertaken at not cost to you.
All entrants should also be aware that mystery calls/emails may be made as part of the evaluation process to assess customer service. We suggest you let your staff know about this.
Can agencies apply to the awards?
No, we do not currently have an award for 'Best Tourism Agency'.
Entries for all other categories (with the exception of Young Tourism Person of the Year), can only be entered by individual businesses/organisations, not by a booking/marketing or management agency acting on their behalf.
can i nominate a business for an award?
No, businesses must apply directly themselves; they cannot be nominated by members of the public. You can encourage them to apply by showing them this website!
The only award that can be nominated is Young Tourism Person of the Year. People can nominate themselves or another young tourism person whom they think is a worthy winner.
if i make it to the finals, will i have to pay for my ticket to the Finalists lunch
There will be no charge for the finalist lunch. This will be organised by the South East Wales Regional Forum
Please note that if you/your business is chosen to go forward to the National Visit Wales awards in May 2020, ticket charges may apply.
