Go to Places launches Visit Herts Awards

23rd August 2017

rsz_breakfast_in_bed.jpgThe destination management organisation Go to Places has launched a new Herts Tourism Awards Scheme for tourism businesses in the county.

The awards are all about motivating businesses to create compelling experiences and adopt best practice.  They reward exceptional standards of customer service and outstanding overall visitor experiences.

Following an initial round of judging by an expert panel, the winners will be decided by a consumer vote which will be supported by an extensive digital marketing campaign. 

Why enter? 

Finalists will feature in a Visit Herts social media and PR campaign that will be used to encourage public voting.  They will also gain a competitive edge through recognition of their commitment to excellence and quality standards, and winners get the chance to go forward to the national Awards for Excellence operated by Visit England (subject to Visit England eligibility criteria).
