Leicestershire Promotions Tourism and Hospitality Awards

Leicestershire Promotions is delighted to launch this year’s annual Tourism Awards. After the success of last year’s awards with over 110 businesses submitting over 190 applications, with 27 worthy winners enjoying a glittering night of celebrations at the awards ceremony, we’re hoping that this year will be even bigger and better than before.
