We want to know about YOUR Tourism Superstar for 2023!

Have you got a Tourism Superstar on your team? Or perhaps you can think of people who work at other businesses that you think have gone above and beyond for tourism on the Isle of Wight?

Visit England, working again with The Mirror newspaper, are on the look out for Tourism Superstars – and of course, when it comes to the Isle of Wight, we have form – in the shape of ultimate winners Jim O’Reilly in 2018 and Lorry Middleton in 2020!

Getting through to the finals brings not only huge national recognition for the Island, but also for your business too!

Visit Isle of Wight is the nominating body for the Isle of Wight, so please let us know who your Tourism Superstar is – email: info@visitwight.org

This year, the competition will also recognise the amazing efforts made by teams across the industry in the face of the pandemic, so if you think you’re team is a winner, lets us know about them too! (please note entries can be of teams that number no more than 10)
