A BROADWAY conference centre has been named the region’s leading venue in the prestigious Cotswolds Tourism Awards 2012.
The Cotswold Conference Centre, which in on the Farncombe Estate, won gold in the conference venue of the year category beating Cheltenham Racecourse and the Barn, Calcot Manor, near Tetbury, into joint second place. The awards are now into their second year and celebrate the cream of the Cotswolds’ hotels, B&Bs, tourism websites, visitor attractions and other tourism businesses.
Richard Howdle, the conference centre’s operations manager, said the award was another endorsement of the variety and quality of services on offer.
“We’re obviously thrilled to have won the category and to be leading the way in one of the strongest regions for tourism in the UK.
“The Cotswolds benefit from great natural beauty, but are also home to some fantastic businesses too.”
