Visit Herts Tourism Awards

Launched in 2017, the Herts Tourism Awards, in association with Go To Places, is an annual awards scheme for tourism businesses in Hertfordshire.

Hertfordshire's tourism businesses and the 40,000 people employed in the industry, drive the £2.2 billion visitor economy. The Herts Tourism Awards are designed to recognise and champion the talented individuals behind these businesses, their dedication and hard work.

The scheme is all about motivating tourism businesses to create compelling experiences and adopt best practice. It rewards exceptional standards of customer service and outstanding overall visitor experiences.

Following an initial round of judging by an independent expert panel, the winners are decided by a round of mystery shopping. Eligible county winners will automatically qualify for the Visit England national Awards for Excellence scheme. 

This year there are 12 award categories, to represent the wide range of tourism businesses found in Hertfordshire.

2020 Herts Tourism Awards 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the unprecedented impact it has had on our industry, VisitEngland has decided the 2020/21 awards cycle will be re-focused on celebrating and recognising businesses and/or individuals working in tourism who have demonstrated great innovation, resilience, adaptation, and compassion within the tourism industry during the COVID-19 crisis.

Due to this decision, Visit Herts has decided to not go ahead with the 2020 Kent Tourism. However, we will announce shortly how Visit Herts' plans to celebrate and recognise businesses across the county that have reposed to the COVID-19 pandemic at a local level.
