Destination Bristol wins Bronze at VisitEngland Awards


Destination Bristol, the destination management organisation (DMO) responsible for promoting the city region as a world-class place to visit through the Visit Bristol brand, is celebrating winning Bronze in the International Distribution category at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2020.

The presentation, which celebrated excellence across the industry, became virtual for the first time and was streamed live via the VisitEngland website and YouTube channel on Monday evening.

The International Distribution Award recognises DMOs and Discover England Fund projects committed to increasing the international distribution of the tourism products within their destination. This follows a record year in 2019 in which Bristol welcomed 636,000 international visitors with record holiday visits from key markets including France, USA, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.

Kathryn Davis, Head of Tourism at Destination Bristol said, “We have been developing our international reach over the last few years, ensuring that we are connected to the wider travel trade industry and working closely with partners to maximise opportunities for the region. This award is great recognition of the hard work that the team do to ensure local businesses are connected internationally to visitors who generally stay longer and spend more.”
