Devon’s leading tourism businesses have been chosen for the finals of the Devon Tourism Awards which will be presented at a prestigious ceremony on 23rd November 2017.

This year saw a record of 205 entries and an increase to 25 categories in the competition which is now in its 8th year following its launch in 2010. A new category was added for Guided Tours, with many changes to other awards to reflect the fast changing nature of global tourism. 76 finalists were selected all of whom will be in suspense until 23rd November when they will learn whether they have won Gold, Silver, Bronze or special awards.
