We are delighted to be hosting the annual awards that celebrate the best of Liverpool City Region's Visitor Economy on 16 May 2019. Once again we are proud to have been shortlisted for the Large Visitor Attraction of the Year award.

Paul Smith, Director of Enterprise at Liverpool Cathedral, said:

“We’re really delighted to be the host venue chosen for next year’s Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards.  As the current holders of the Large Visitor Attraction Award, we have first-hand experience of the tremendous benefits which these prestigious awards bring.”

There are 17 award categories this year which cover the whole industry and include Hotel of the Year, Entertainment Venue of the Year and Best Newcomer. The previously named ‘Taste’ award has been split into Restaurant of the Year and Café of the Year.

Peter Sandman, Head of Visitor Economy for the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “To see so many entries come in not only shows how prestigious these awards are but also the amount of healthy competition we have across the city region – which only continues to push tourism standards up. This is confirmed through the latest figures, which show the local visitor economy is now worth over £4.5bn annually and supports over 53,500 jobs.

“Holding the event in such a stunning venue will create a very special atmosphere and make this year’s awards unmissable.”

Sponsors this year already include: ACC Liverpool, Liverpool Cathedral, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Marketing Liverpool, Merseyrail, NatWest, Ticket Quarter, Wild Thang and Wirral Chamber of Commerce.
