Visit Hull and East Yorkshire (VHEY) have announced the shortlist for the sixth annual Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards (REYTAs) with a number of Bridlington based businesses in contention for an award.

Bridlington based businesses in contention for an award.

The hotly anticipated list features some of Hull and East Yorkshire’s finest attractions, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, accommodation providers and tourism experiences. The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the KC Stadium in Hull, on March 19th.

Among the Bridlington nominees include Sewerby Hall and Gardens and Bondville Model Village for Remarkable Visitor Attraction/Experience as well as Bridlington Spa who are nominated in the Remarkable Conference & Meeting Venue category.

The REYTAs honour the brightest and best in this region’s tourism industry and celebrate the enormous achievements of businesses across Hull and East Yorkshire. Tourism is a vital part of the area’s economy, contributing £757 annually. The REYTAs help to support the industry by raising awareness of the superb quality we have to offer visitors.

Andy Gray, tourism manager of Visit Hull and East Yorkshire, said: “We have been setting records ever since the awards began and this year is no exception. Both the numbers and quality of entries have been amazing.”

He said the creation of new categories, including those rewarding both food producers and food providers, better reflected the vibrant tourism market in Hull and East Yorkshire, which continues to attract more and more visitors.

“Equally, having categories for events both large and small allows the awards to better highlight the fantastic range of attractions, festivals and arts events across the region,” Mr Gray said.

“We’ve had more first-time entries this year, which is extremely pleasing, and all of the categories have been keenly contested.

The judges have had a really tough job short listing but I firmly believe the awards really do showcase the very best of what Hull & the East Riding has to offer the visitor. Congratulations and good luck to everyone who has made the shortlist. This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone involved in Hull and East Yorkshire’s tourism industry to join us at the KC Stadium in Hull on March 19 to celebrate the fabulous offering in the region.”

Tickets for the awards evening are available, individually or tables of ten, at £45+ VAT per head.
