Saffery Champness Accountants sponsor Business Events Venue of the Year at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2021

May 17, 2021

Saffery Champness Accountants in Bournemouth is sponsoring the ‘Business Events Venue of the Year’ category at the 2021 Dorset Tourism Awards (DTA).

The prestigious awards have just launched and the organisers are encouraging business owners to apply for the chance to gain national recognition. Winners of the local awards are given the opportunity to progress on to the regional South West awards and, for some categories, the national VisitEngland awards, giving huge publicity to the successful businesses.

Saffery Partner Hannah Mazrae said, “The annual Dorset Tourism Awards showcase businesses and organisations from across the county and demonstrate the quality and depth of the county’s tourism offering. 

“It goes without saying that this has been an extremely difficult year for the tourism industry, although it’s been great to see how so many businesses have innovated to make the best of the situation.   We are delighted to be sponsoring a category at these awards and are extremely proud to have been involved since the inaugural event took place, 9 years ago.  Our award category recognises business events venues that demonstrate an excellent understanding of the market, exceeding the expectations of their clients and have a strategic plan for future development within this area, with clear goals. We look forward to celebrating their successes.”

Organiser of the Dorset Tourism Awards, which are now in their ninth year, Robin Barker said: “The last year has highlighted the need for tourism to adapt and innovate, and the same applies to the awards. This year sees new categories, new criteria and an extended entry period giving businesses the chance to enter early ‘before the rush’ or to leave it till they have welcomed more visitors if they prefer. We so look forward to engaging with everyone once again.”
