Fancy being at the VisitEngland Tourism Awards 2023? We’re giving you the rare chance to co-create your application to the Destination Lincolnshire Tourism Excellence Awards with Nell Barrington, a tourism awards veteran, who has helped hundreds of businesses write winning applications over the last 15 years – including national VisitEngland winners!

The Tourism Excellence Awards Masterclass is taking place on Tuesday 12th July at 11am for one-hour online. Laura Freer, Head of Marketing at Destination Lincolnshire said: “This is a golden opportunity, after years of hard work and heartache, 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 VisitEngland 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 effectively apply for awards and talk up your business adds another string to your bow.

Booking is essential and places are limited to just 35 - so be quick! This year we’ve made our masterclass available to partners and also to those who we are yet to work with for free. Call it an added bonus, after two years away from the awards circuit. Just think, by investing one hour in this class you will find out what makes an award winning entry, pick up lots of practical advice, hints and tips and have time to ask your questions. As we've said, places are limited, and booking will close two days before the event takes place too, so be sure to book now.”

The awards masterclass is focussed on the application process, and it 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 VisitEngland Awards in 2023.

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 Head of Marketing, Laura Freer and Stonebow Media's, Katrina Burrill - our media partner for the awards - 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. Find out more about the Destination Lincolnshire Tourism Awards and categories, and book your place at the masterclass - be sure to get your applications in before the closing date on 29 July 2022.
