Book your space onto one of two Tourism Awards Masterclass Workshops today

Destination Lincolnshire Tourism Awards 21 10 2022 SS 1397

The 2023 Destination Lincolnshire Tourism Awards are open for applications, and we're thrilled to now be able to offer you not one but two golden opportunities to co-create your application with Nell Barrington, a tourism awards veteran, who has helped hundreds of businesses write winning applications over the last 15 years – including national Visit England winners!

Taking place on June 13th at 2pm and June 21st at 10.30am for one-hour online, booking for the Masterclasses opens at 5pm today (June 2nd). Book now.

Laura Freer, head of marketing at Destination Lincolnshire said: “This is a golden opportunity, after years of hard work, to get your business and team recognised and rewarded.

“A well-written application is key to achieving a coveted place on this year’s shortlist, and I’d encourage all tourism and visitor economy businesses who are thinking of entering – whether they are seasoned at writing award applications or not – to join us for this exclusive masterclass.

“Nell Barrington has worked with us and Visit England on the founding application processes of these awards, and she is perfectly placed to assist in co-creating applications that you can be proud of. This is a great opportunity for business development too – whether you are shortlisted for an award or not – discovering how to apply for awards and talk up effectively your business adds another string to your bow.

Booking is essential and places are limited to just 70, 35 per workshop, so be quick! This year we’ve added an additional date after last year's fully booked event. I'd encourage all partners, and those currently not partners of Destination Lincolnshire, to book a spot - many of those who did last year ended up on the shortlist as well as on stage collecting a winner's trophy."

The awards masterclasses focus on the application process and will spell out what the judges are looking for. You’ll learn how to make your application stand out from the local competition, helping your chances of going through to the National Visit England Awards in 2024.

Nell Barrington from Services4Tourism will guide you through the application process and provide some top tips along the way. And, while Nell does the talking, Destination Lincolnshire’s team will be on hand in the online event chat room to field your queries and category-specific questions.

So, why come along? Other than the fact that you'll have exclusive access to award application professionals if you have never entered the tourism awards before, are unsure about how to apply via the online process or are set on entering but have no idea how to make your application stand-out - this event is for you.
