Sponsorship Opportunities

Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent LVEP, the official Tourist Board for Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, would like to invite you to become a sponsor of the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Tourism Awards.

What are the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Tourism Awards?

Now in their eleventh year, the awards which were previously known as the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism & Good Food Awards, are a prestigious occasion for tourism and hospitality businesses throughout Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.  

With 19 categories covering tourism, hospitality and leisure, the awards showcase the very best Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent has to offer. They recognise and reward the outstanding work done by businesses and people throughout the region which make the area a great place to visit, live, and work.

A number of our award winners will automatically go forward to the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. 

The Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Tourism Awards culminate in a gala black-tie dinner and presentation ceremony usually held in March

Last year around 300 decision makers from across Staffordshire were in attendance as well as other key dignitaries from Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
