Tourism Society Award

Recognising Outstanding Contribution To Tourism

The Tourism Society award is designed to recognise individuals or organisations who have made an outstanding contribution to the development and success of the tourism industry.

Awards can be for lifetime achievements or to recognise success gained in the past 12 months. The work that is to be recognised should be outside expectations of their jobs and show a real and tangible advance for tourism within any of its sectors. If a team or group is put forward it should be seen as a complete team and not just a collection of people.

Given by the Board to organisations or individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the development of tourism in the United Kingdom.

All members of the Society are eligible to nominate an individual or organisation they think has made an outstanding contribution to the development of tourism in the United Kingdom.
