VisitEngland Awards for Excellence
17 December 2012
Winner of the Devon Tourism Awards Visitor Attraction of the Year 2012, RAMM has now joined the winners of the South West Tourism Excellence Awards.
RAMM will join the other 55 winners at the awards finale at Eden Project on Friday 8 February 2013 when the winners of the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be announced. The ceremony will be held in association with South West Water.
RAMM is competing for the large visitor attraction award with Cotehele, Cornwall, National Maritime Museum Cornwall and The Roman Baths in Bath. The award is sponsored by Take One Media.
The South West Tourism Excellence Awards are the ‘official’ tourism awards for the region, offering entry to businesses in Somerset, Dorset, Bath, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol and the Isles of Scilly as well as linking closely with the awards in Cornwall and Devon. They also form the regional heat of the national VisitEngland awards, to which most of the winners will now progress.
300 entries were considered for the Awards, with all entrants undergoing a rigorous short-listing process and 164 going on to be visited by a team of over 30 judges and mystery shoppers.
