The Beautiful South Awards 2016/17 will culminate in a prestigious celebration dinner at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl near Southampton on the 24th November, 2016.

Jonathan Neame, Chief Executive of headline sponsor Shepherd Neame, said,

“Shepherd Neame is delighted to continue supporting the Beautiful South Awards, and helping to celebrate the South East’s vibrant tourism industry. South East businesses enjoyed great success in the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence this year and we hope that our continued support for the Beautiful South Awards in 2016 will see that trend continue.’

Ken Robinson CBE, Chairman of Tourism South East, said,

‘’In tourism, like any other business, quality counts and the best businesses make their own success. Our performance in the National Awards this year showed that the South East has tourism businesses that can compete on a national and international level. We know our most successful businesses inspire others and that’s why we run the Beautiful South Awards each year. With more categories in 2016/17, we are hoping for a record number of entries.’’
