An evening that sees finalists, sponsors, and guests recognising and celebrating this valuable sector.
The Lancashire Tourism Awards 2019, was held on Thursday 7 November at the Pleasure Beach Arena, Blackpool supported by Headline Sponsor, University of Central Lancashire and Host Sponsor VisitBlackpool. The awards celebrated excellence across a wide range of visitor economy businesses, revealed 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.
Together, we championed the importance of the £4.41 billion visitor economy which attracts 68.74 million visitors to Lancashire each year and supports over 60,782 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.
