The Welcome People win Silver at the 2015 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence The Welcome People have won a Silver Award in the Visitor Information Provider category at the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2015 Ceremony.
The Silver Award is one of the highest accolades for Excellence in Tourism in England which VisitEngland can bestow. The Welcome People were presented with their Silver Award at a glittering Awards Ceremony which was held on 11 May 2015 at The Sage, Gateshead.
Commenting on the Award James Berresford, VisitEngland’s Chief Executive said ” We received hundreds of applications of an extremely high quality this year. Winning a Silver is therefore a considerable achievement and one of the highest accolades for excellence in tourism which VisitEngland can bestow. I warmly congratulate The Welcome People’.
Speaking on behalf of The Welcome People, co-founder David Miller said “It’s the first time we’ve entered any sort of awards and we couldn’t quite believe it when they announced our name. To have been independently assessed as one of the top 5 businesses in the country representing the cream of English tourism was quite an accolade but to have come away with Silver is fantastic. The award is a tribute to the dedication and passion of our wonderful, multi-lingual staff and we are looking forward to a very bright future.
