We are delighted to announce that having received a record number of entries from tourism businesses and experiences across the South East - judging has taken place and the list of finalists for 2019 has been anounced which you can see here.
Mark Smith, Chairman of Tourism South East, said, “I’m blown away by the number and quality of entries we have received this year. Thank you to everyone who has entered and congratulations on your achievements. Whether you are a finalist or not, you can be proud of your hard work and the commitment you and your team have made to achieving excellence. Good luck to all our entrants and I hope to be celebrating with you at the Grand Hotel on the 10 December. Let the judging begin’’.
The judging process has been taking place over the last 4 months and will now be celebrated with a dinner and an awards ceremony at the prestigious Grand Hotel in Brighton on the 10th of December 2019 - hosted by Simon Calder.
Nigel Smith, Chief Executive of Tourism South East, said, “Achieving excellence isn’t easy – it takes vision, years of commitment and a lot of hard work from talented people. Those behind the businesses that make the finals of the Beautiful South Awards have got these qualities in abundance. They can be proud of what they have achieved and the example they are setting for others. The Awards are a celebration of their achievements and a showcase for the sheer quality of what they offer. I would encourage any tourism business that has achieved great things in the last 18 months to enter and get the recognition they and their teams deserve.
Of course, the Beautiful South Awards couldn’t take place without our fantastic sponsors and voluntary judges. Again this year, we are extremely grateful for their support. We are looking forward to another unforgettable night of celebration at the splendid Grand Brighton, our headline sponsors again for 2019."
Andrew Mosley, General Manager from headline sponsor the Grand Brighton said, “We are delighted to be this year's title sponsor of The Beautiful South Awards. It is a real privilege to be selected again as the host venue following the success of the ceremony when it was last year. The Awards really shine a spotlight on the whole host of quality and successful hospitality businesses the South East has to offer. We very much look forward to welcoming the Tourism South East team and all the finalists to the Awards ceremony in December."
Good luck to everyone who has entered.
