Tourism Award for Treasure Trails
Treasure Trails Gloucestershire, as part of Treasure Trails South West (Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Gloucestershire) is celebrating today after picking up a Bronze Award at the prestigious South West Tourism Excellence Awards last night, held at Torquay’s Riviera International Conference Centre.
Distinguished guests from the tourism and related industries attended the highly-anticipated awards ceremony on Monday which celebrated ‘the best in the South West'. BBC’s Declan Curry presented Treasure Trails with the Bronze award for Best Tourism Experience, after they were selected by a judging panel from over 300 entries.
Treasure Trails create murder mystery, treasure hunt and spy mission trails around towns and villages as a way of getting people out and about, exploring their local area and having fun.
Rachel Butt, Manager of Treasure Trails Gloucestershire is delighted to be part of a growing team of award winning Trail writers and comments ‘We are thrilled to have won this award amidst such strong competition. We are 100% committed to providing our customers with fantastic experiences and strive for excellence in everything that we do. We are really pleased to be able to celebrate our success and this award with our customers, colleagues and partners.’
Alistair Handyside, Chairman of South West Tourism, said, ‘I am absolutely delighted with not only the standard of entries, but also the calibre, dedication and passion for quality of our winners – the tourism industry of the South West goes from strength to strength. Each year, we showcase what is truly excellent about our visitor economy and we celebrate success – in customer service and experience and our industry in general.’
