Each year I am incredibly proud to introduce these awards which celebrate the success of businesses, individuals and partnerships across Lancashire. It’s an evening that sees nominees, sponsors, guests and colleagues recognising this valuable sector. Together, we champion the importance of the £3.8 billion visitor economy which attracts 64 million visitors to Lancashire each year and supports over 56,000 jobs. A thriving Lancashire tourism sector contributes to the economy, to employment, to the culture, the quality of life and the prosperity of Lancashire. The Lancashire Tourism Awards reminds us of the diversity that the county has and how privileged we are to have such amazing experiences to offer visitors.
The annual awards, celebrate excellence across a wide range of visitor economy businesses, reveal the brightest and best stars working in Lancashire tourism today, with many of the county’s winners then going on to represent Lancashire at the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2018.
By sponsoring the awards you have the opportunity to promote your company in a wide range of marketing collateral at this high profile event. The sponsors of last year’s event enjoyed the
increased positive profile surrounding the event on social media, radio, press and PR, reaching an audience of over 20 million.
We hope you’ll choose to support the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2017, a very special night for tourism in Lancashire.
