Cotswold Tourism Awards 2014

Cotswold Tourism Awards 2014


The 2014 Cotswolds Tourism Awards highlight the successes and achievements of Cotswold tourism businesses throughout the last year in 15 different categories.

Britain will have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025 – just under 10% of UK GDP and supporting almost 3.8 million jobs, which is around 11% of the total UK number. Tourism’s central role in creating new jobs across Britain was underlined in a report from Deloitte – ‘Tourism: jobs and growth’, commissioned by VisitBritain. For the second year running the Cotswold Tourism awards are in alignment with the VisitEngland National Awards, using the same categories and application forms. The gold and silver winners for each category will automatically go through to the VisitEngland National awards and will be in for a chance of picking up an award nationally.

The judging of the Cotswolds Tourism awards has been taking place and the results are in...
