Lancashire Tourism Awards finalists announced

Marketing Lancashire, the county's destination management organisation, has revealed the finalists of the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2015.

The only tourism-focused awards in Lancashire will take place on Thursday 5 November in the Empress Ballroom at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Ruth Connor, chief executive of Marketing Lancashire, said: “The quality of applications for the tourism awards never fails to impress and this year the judges have a real challenge deciding on the winners in each category. Lancashire has seen consistent growth in visitor numbers over the last six years and these visitors are now spending more in the county, making a £3.68bn contribution to Lancashire's economy.

"The visitor economy is vital to Lancashire success and each year the Lancashire Tourism Awards is our way of celebrating the huge effort and investment made by our industry colleagues across the board. I wish all the finalists luck in the next stage of the awards process and look forward to congratulating Lancashire's best in class at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool on 5 November."

Finalists of the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2015 will be invited to an interview by the judging panel during the week of 12 October, when each business will have the opportunity to discuss their application in more detail.
