Tourism is an immensely important part of Nottinghamshire’s economy and with the tourism industry continually growing, we thought it was about time to celebrate what the city and county has to offer.
Since 2013 there has been plenty to shout about within Nottinghamshire with the number of jobs, the number of visitors and the value of tourism all increasing. The value of tourism has increased by at least 8% since 2011, now reaching over an astonishing £1.5 billion per year.
The tourism industry is responsible for bringing in over 33 million visitors a year to the city and county, which has also seen an increase in the overnight visitors (over 3.5 million) and subsequently growing the average visitor spend to around £50.
The industry isn’t just attracting people from out of the county but it is also providing jobs for people in the city too. As of 2013 over 21,000 full time jobs are currently occupied within the tourism sector throughout Nottinghamshire.
The Nottinghamshire Tourism Awards are all about celebrating the very best of the tourism industry throughout the county, including 'Visitor Experience of the Year', 'Bed and Breakfast of the Year' and many more.
