The 2016 results were announced on 23rd November at a Carnivale themed awards dinner held at Battersea Evolution in London.
Delighted with their accolade, Alan Turner, Tourism Marketing & Development Manager, Pembrokeshire County Council said, “We’re honoured to have won this prestigious award for Tenby and are hugely grateful to all those who took the trouble to vote for us”
“We entered Tenby in the 2013 & 2014 awards and came home delighted with a Bronze and Silver Award and to be awarded silver again is a huge achievement”
The British Travel Awards are acknowledged as the most definitive and largest monitor of public opinion on the performance of travel and tourism providers. Travel companies and tourism organisations were invited to register for listing in the various categories; a shortlist was then drawn up by a panel of respected individuals from both in and outside of the travel industry, but it is the holidaymakers whose votes finally determine the winners.
‘It’s a huge achievement’ said Alan Turner. ‘For Tenby to have received votes from the public ahead of such great resorts is incredible. “We’ve worked tirelessly to raise the profile of Tenby & Pembrokeshire and its tourism businesses over many years and to get the seal of approval from the public is very special.’
Keith Lewis Cabinet Member for Economy and Communities said “This is well deserved recognition for Tenby & Pembrokeshire and for all the hard work our tourism marketing team and tourism businesses have put in over the last few years to develop and promote first class accommodation, attractions and visitor services across the county”.
