Wirral Council is now inviting nominations for Wirral Tourism Awards 2015, the annual gongs that celebrate exceptional standards of quality and service across tourism and hospitality in the borough.

Anyone can nominate a person working or volunteering in the industry, so if you’ve enjoyed exceptional service over the past year, help give them a well-earned pat on the back by nominating them.

Launching the nomination process, Cllr Pat Hackett, Wirral’s Cabinet Member for the Economy, said: ‘Wirral’s visitor economy is blossoming and is now valued at almost £328 million, employing more than 4,600 people, and welcoming more than 7m visitors to the borough each year.

‘Last year, Wirral reached a worldwide audience through the Open Golf Championship, so you may have friends and family who were particularly impressed with a tourism experience as part of their visit to see the golf. Let them know that they too can nominate one of Wirral’s tourism businesses and give them a moment of well-deserved glory.’

Nominations are open now and close on Friday, February 6. All nominations will be assessed by a panel of judges, three finalists will be selected for each category, and will be assessed at their place of work. Awards will be presented at the prestigious Awards Dinner on April 15, at the Floral Pavilion and Conference Centre, New Brighton.

Award categories are as follows:

  • Most Professional Front of House or Bar Team Sponsored by Woods Squared Ltd
  • Tourism Team of the Year Sponsored by The Wedding Collection
  • Most Supportive Supervisor or Manager Sponsored by Wirral Chamber of Commerce
