We WON | Award Winning Visitor Information…
So, Simply Staffordshire can now be called “award winning” – totally fantastic news because it means that all our members are awarded, officially awesome status because we hand picked them!
Enjoy Staffordshire (Staffordshire Destination Management Partnership) host the Tourism Awards each year and this year the ceremony was held at the National Memorial Arboretum – a true treasure of Staffordshire. We were treated to wartime food and the stunning voice of Lola as we enjoyed great networking and chat, Staffordshire style.
I was there to represent Simply Staffordshire members as well as the businesses I had supported in their applications. Alongside us were many Simply members too…all doing fabulous, stand out stuff in Staffordshire.
To cut rather a long story short, we won Silver in the Visitor Information category, meaning that we will now be going through to the National Finals…yikes! I am particularly proud that the hard work we put in to, not only finding the best people and places, but also supporting them to make their businesses brilliant has been recognised amongst to big league tourism information folks of the county. I feel it is an acknowledgement and celebration of the fact that small is beautiful, independent business rocks and Staffordshire is special.
