Just Beverley Finalists in Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards!

Visit Hull and East Yorkshire (VHEY) has announced the shortlist for the seventh annual Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards (REYTAs), and we're thrilled that there's an appearance from the Just Beverley magazine and website.

The hotly-anticipated list features some of Hull and East Yorkshire’s finest attractions, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, accommodation providers and tourism experiences, many of which are in Beverley.

The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at The Spa, Bridlington, on March 17th.

Regarded as the tourism “Oscars”, the REYTAs honour the brightest and best in this region's tourism industry and celebrate the enormous achievements of businesses across Hull and East Yorkshire. 

Tourism is a vital part of this area's economy, contributing £771 million annually. The REYTAs help to support the industry by raising awareness of the superb quality on offer to visitors.

The 13 categories include Remarkable Large and Small Tourism Event, Remarkable Cuppa and Remarkable Taste of East Yorkshire, with Just Beverley shortlisted in the Remarkable Newcomer category.

Andy Gray, tourism manager of Visit Hull and East Yorkshire, said: “Once again we have been staggered by the number and quality of entries and the level of support we receive from local businesses in terms of sponsorship, which allows us to organise this prestigious event.

“We have been particularly pleased by the number of first-time entries and the response to the new categories we have introduced,” he said. These included the Remarkable Newcomer Award and the Remarkable Taste of East Yorkshire.

VHEY also reinstated a category for the best holiday park or caravan park in Hull and East Yorkshire; the result being a record number of entries. A total of six have been shortlisted through to the finals.

“The value of tourism to Hull and East Yorkshire continues to rise year on year and the quality of the visitor experience, including accommodation, is what makes us so successful,” said Gray.
