Humber region names its top tourism businesses

Hull and East Yorkshire’s tourism Oscars have culminated in a glittering awards evening attended by more than 500 at the Bonus Arena in Hull.

There was fierce competition amongst 72 finalists for this year’s Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards (the REYTAs), in this, the tenth year they have been organised by Visit Hull and East Yorkshire.

Andy Gray, VHEY’s tourism manager, described it as “a remarkable event to celebrate a remarkable industry which contributes over £878 million annually to the Hull and East Yorkshire economy.”

He continued: “This evening provides us with an opportunity to celebrate success and showcase all that is remarkable about Hull and East Yorkshire and the response we have had to the REYTAs this year has once again been incredible, with a record number of entries.”

The REYTAs wouldn’t happen without the support of the sponsors, who include the Bonus Arena, Strawberry Marketing, of Hull, The Deep, St Stephen’s Shopping Centre, Hospitality Staffing, Wykeland, VIP Worldwide, Hull Daily Mail, Bridlington Tourism Association, the East Yorkshire Local Food Network, East Riding of Yorkshire Rural Partnership, Sparq and Wolds Edge Holiday Lodges, of Bishop Wilton.

Visit Hull and East Yorkshire (VHEY) is a partnership between East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Hull City Council and the many private sector businesses within the tourism industry.

Councillor Dave Craker, portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism at Hull City Council, said: “Each year the REYTAs celebrate the outstanding businesses and organisations that make our region such a remarkable place to visit and enjoy. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees who continue to fly the flag for Hull and East Yorkshire.”

Meanwhile, Alan Menzies, director of planning and economic regeneration at East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “The Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards (REYTAs) celebrate the very best of what this local industry has to offer and recognises the quality of businesses and individuals involved.”

He continued: ”The REYTAs are one of the most eagerly anticipated awards ceremonies on the tourism calendar and I would like to think all those who entered the 2019 awards, commend those short-listed in each of the categories and congratulate the winners.”
