Welcome to the North East England Tourism Awards 2022

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, and are FREE for tourism businesses to enter.

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 benefits 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.

The North East England Tourism Awards 2022 are being run in partnership with the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. Eligible winners of the awards will automatically feed into the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence, ensuring we promote the best of the region on a national stage.

“Being given an accolade by local people from the region means as much to us if not more than all the national awards we’ve won over the years. Not only is it great to have recognition showing we’re doing something right but has also been a real morale booster for the team who have worked tirelessly over the past few years to ensure the restaurant’s survival and success. The award will also give us something to shout about in all of our promotion so it will undoubtedly be good for business, bringing new people into the restaurant.”
