Tourism NI Encourages Entries for Newly Launched Giant Spirit Awards

Tourism NI is encouraging entries from all areas of Northern Ireland for the newly launched and updated annual awards programme aimed at showcasing and rewarding best in class in the tourism and hospitality industry. Renamed The Giant Spirit Awards, the event will build on the successful legacy of the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards which ran for over forty years until 2019.

The Giant Spirt awards will be more closely aligned to the award winning destination brand Northern Ireland ~ Embrace a Giant Spirit. The 2022 event will recognise and celebrate the resilience and sprit of the industry in facing the challenges of the last two years as well as those who exemplified the values of the destination, innovated and built competitiveness.

Tourism NI Chief Executive John McGrillen said;

“I am delighted to launch our newly branded annual awards which have been a central pillar of our support to industry for decades. Over the last two years the industry has shown enormous resilience and, looking to the future, collaboration and innovation will be the basis of our recovery.

“We believe it is vital that the people, places and organisations that contribute to our success continue to be rewarded. The Giant Spirit Awards are about recognising the very best within our industry and we are keen to encourage businesses of all sizes to enter”.

The Giant Spirit awards categories will include Best Hotel, Best B&B and Guesthouse, Best Self-Catering, Best Tourism Experience, Best Food and Drink Experience, Most Innovative Business, Most Promising Student and a number of special awards.

An information event for industry took place on Wednesday 29th June at Ten Square Hotel, Belfast. The session is now available to watch here: NI Giant Spirit Awards 2022 - Information session - YouTube

The Awards Gala Dinner and presentation will take place in the Grand Ballroom of the Slieve Donard Resort, Newcastle on Thursday 6th October 2022 with an anticipated audience of 300-350 guests.
