Award Finalists 2019

The waiting is over and the shortlist of finalists for this years Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards being held in association with Wales Cottages has been announced.

The panel of judges with over 85 years of direct experience in the tourism industry reviewed each nomination before deciding which businesses would proceed to the awards ceremony which this year will be held at Meadow House Holiday Park, Amroth on 7th November.

With the prospect of some winners qualifying for the regional awards and possibly the national awards, stakes were high and the tourism industry responded by ensuring their entries stood out. Often margins were slight in determining which business would proceed and this proved to be a headache for the judges but they stuck to their task and produced a list of those who in their opinion deserved to go forward.

A message from our Chairperson; Jane Rees-Baynes….

“On behalf of the board and staff of Pembrokeshire Tourism, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the awards and congratulate those businesses who’ve been successfully shortlisted. Competition amongst Pembrokeshire’s finest tourism providers ensures that the spotlight remains on an industry which continues to grow in size and stature and it’s important for us to recognise their efforts”.

Working closely with the various sectors that make up the tourism industry in Pembrokeshire means that we are in the best position to see the continuous effort made to keep the county as a destination of choice for thousands of visitors each year. Many accommodation providers, food and drink establishments, activity providers and family attractions are investing greater resources and finances in order to attract new and repeat business and this was evident in the nominations received for the awards. We already have plenty to celebrate but the ceremony in November will provide the opportunity once again to recognise and reward the finalists.

Congratulations and good luck to all of our finalists
