We were very excited this morning to return triumphant from last night’s fantastic 2012 Liverpool City Region Annual Tourism Awards, where we walked away with no less than three awards!

More than 400 guests joined the celebrations to recognise quality and excellence during a black tie ceremony hosted by local TV personality Terri Dwyer at the BT Convention Centre.

It was a glittering evening organised by the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership with singing from Rare Liverpool, a dramatic opening of jaw dropping acrobatics from the Airborn Academy and The Beatles’ greatest hits from a local tribute band.

The first award we won was for the coveted Tourism Marketing Initiative of the Year Award for the Museum of Liverpool opening campaign. The second success of the night was winning the Tourism Event of the Year award for the Museum of Liverpool People’s Opening and finally NML Trading won the award for Excellence in Business Tourism. It was a huge team effort so congratulations to everyone!

Tourism Event of the Year and Excellence in Business Tourism awards are eligible to represent the Liverpool City Region at VisitEngland’s Awards for Excellence – so watch this space!
