Visit York Tourism Awards

Yorwaste was delighted to be one of the sponsors of the 2018 Visit York Tourism Awards.

Known as the Oscars of the city’s tourism sector, the awards shine a spotlight on excellence in tourism and rewarding outstanding service, innovation and quality.

We sponsored the category of ‘best shopping experience’ which this year was won by jewellery retailer Azendi. The award was presented by Yorwaste Account Manager Kate Anderson.

All the winners were announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the National Railway Museum on Thursday 21st June 2018.

Sally Greenaway, Head of Visit York, said: “The awards recognise the very best in our industry. It has been brilliant to see more independent businesses taking part this year.

We congratulate all of the winners and finalists for their commitment to ensuring York’s visitors have the very best experience here.”

Yorwaste was one of 16 local businesses to sponsor the glittering awards ceremony, which included a black tie dinner, a prize draw and live music by local bands Brassanova and The Rebel Sounds. Proceeds from the charity raffle will go to the Family Holiday Association, helping struggling families and children across Yorkshire to enjoy a visit to York.

Kate said: “It was a pleasure to present the award on behalf of Yorwaste. We would like to congratulate Azendi and all the winners.

“Yorwaste provides waste and recycling services to many customers across York, so it’s great to be able to support events like this which showcase everything that is good about the city.”
