The Manchester Tourism Awards recognise and reward the high levels of investment in quality and outstanding contributions to tourism.
The awards showcase the very best of what the city-region has to offer, and are an excellent incentive to tourism businesses in Greater Manchester, to continue to raise the industry standard.
There were 14 award categories, covering accommodation, visitor attractions, events, retail and restaurants. New categories for this year include Best Entertainment Venue of the Year, for theatres, music venues and comedy clubs and Tourism Star of the Year, which is suitable for individuals who demonstrate an exceptional customer experience and offer visitors high standards of customer service, such as front of house staff, tour guides and taxi drivers.
This year's ceremony took place on Wednesday 7th November in the fabulous surroundings of the Quays Theatre at the Lowry. To see who scooped took home the awards visit our Winners page.
