The East of England Tourism Awards is an opportunity to recognise, celebrate and support those businesses and individuals from across the East of England that have shown resilience, imagination and growth within a sector which is close to all of our hearts and lives.

This year's re-invigorated awards are brought to you in association with Visit East of England, and have been made possible by a range of sponsors, led by our headline partner; Hoseasons. We would also like to thank Visit Cambridge, Visit Essex, Visit Norfolk and Visit Suffolk for their support of the awards.

Tourism businesses operating across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire, were invited to enter one of our 15 categories, which closed on Sunday 3 October. Entries were put forward to our judges for review and judging took place.

Our finalists have officially been announced, and winners will be revealed at our glittering black-tie event which takes place at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, Cambridgeshire, on Thursday 24 February 2022, marking the celebration of those who have grappled with a year of change, challenge and new opportunities.

The industry will come together to shine a light on our finalists and celebrate those who are crowned winners of their category.

The East of England Tourism Awards is a gathering of the very communities, the businesses, the people, that help to put our counties on the map, and we extend our thanks to all who have made this award programme possible.
