Jo Dilley, Managing Director of Visit Peak District & Derbyshire, said: “Supporting the recovery of local visitor economy businesses remains our priority, and the Peak District & Derbyshire Tourism Awards provide a timely opportunity to celebrate our world-class tourism offer.

“There are plenty of reasons why the Peak District and Derbyshire should be at the top of any bucket list, and not only do the awards champion the passionate tourism businesses and hardworking individuals who represent the best of the sector, they also serve as a reminder of the value of our visitor economy and how it helps all businesses and employees across Derbyshire.

“The awards ceremony at Casa Hotel on 2nd March promises to be a fantastic event and we encourage people to get their tickets as soon as possible to join us for an evening to remember!”
