News: Highgate House Named Best Business Tourism Establishment in England
18 Apr 2011
Highgate House has won the Gold title for ‘Best Business Tourism Establishment' throughout the country, at the weekend's EnjoyEngland Excellence in Tourism Awards. This follows the dedicated Northamptonshire conference and meeting venue winning Gold within its East Midlands region for the past two years.
This year the highly prestigious Enjoy England Awards for Excellence ceremony was held at The Great Hall of Birmingham University. The awards, sponsored by the Caravan Club, celebrate the very best the country has to offer, bringing together over 75 outstanding establishments from all over the country. Alongside Highgate House, the national winners for 2011 included Royal Ascot in Berkshire and the famous Langham Hotel in London.
The 54 gold and silver winners were selected from 126 regional winners submitted by regional tourist boards and were rigorously assessed by independent assessors and a team of judges to make it through to the national final. The finalists were selected by a board of tourism industry experts and experienced travel journalists. One of the judges for the awards, Nikki Nichol, head of publicity and industry relations at The Caravan Club said: "I am honoured to be a judge and it truly was a tricky decision to decide on the winners from so many strong candidates. The passion and commitment to excellence shown by all of the gold and silver winners is synonymous with The Club's ethos and we look forward to another bumper summer of tourism in England".
Paul Williams, Manager at Highgate House said, "I am absolutely thrilled that the hard work of the whole team at Highgate House has been credited nationally and that we have been recognised as the best when it comes to providing a superior service to business customers" He explained, "Winning Best Business Tourism Establishment in the East Midlands for the past two years has been fantastic but to win the Gold title in the whole of England is an incredible feeling, I am brimming with pride."
