Gold Crown at Cornwall Tourism Awards

Cornwall Plus have been presented with a Gold award in the International category at the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2020-21.

The Cornwall Tourism Awards, a hallmark of quality in the Cornish tourism and hospitality industry, held their annual ceremony online on 25 February, supported by headline sponsor Quality in Tourism. Entrants were judged on their entry submission, digital presence, reviews and external evidence.

Director of Commercial Operations, FX Plus, Lee Hallam said: “Thank you to the Cornwall Tourism Awards Event organisers for this recognition, and to all FX Plus teams for their involvement, hard work and commitment in delivering summer accommodation for groups and holiday-makers. This accolade will help our summer business grow and we are very proud to achieve this award.”

Awards organiser Robin Barker of Services for Tourism said: “It would have been very easy to cancel the Awards this year – we did think long and hard about it, but the level of early entries we received in spite of everything, and the creativity and determination shown by entrants inspired us to find a way to make this happen – and your responses and feedback ever since have completely blown us away. The reactions from today’s winners including words such as ‘overwhelmed’, ‘heartwarming’ and ‘moments of sparkle’ have made it all worthwhile.”

Cornwall Plus champions international visitors by participating in conferences and international travel trade fairs to better understand the cultural needs of visitors and international markets, to welcome groups to Cornwall. The team also partners with local activity and educational providers to put together socially responsible packages for young people, to facilitate summer schools at the Penryn Campus.

A great deal of work has taken place to improve the functionality of the website with a language translation option and a dedicated international section to support and advise our visitors.
