The finalists for the 2024 West Midlands Tourism Awards have been shortlisted, with 35 of the region’s top tourism businesses competing in 14 categories.

Businesses from across the region’s accommodation, arts, food & drink, visitor attraction and heritage sectors will be aiming for success and acknowledgement in categories, including Experience of the Year, New Tourism Business and Taste of the West Midlands.

The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony held in early 2024 and will automatically be entered into the annual VisitEngland Awards for Excellence for the chance to be recognised on a national level.

The awards are delivered by the West Midlands Growth Company (WMGC) – the region’s destination marketing agency. Now in their fourth year, the awards will form part of WMGC’s overarching Global West Midlands programme, designed to strengthen the region’s visitor economy by harnessing sustainable domestic tourism, growing the demand for inbound international tourism and attracting more major business and sporting events.

Andrew Lovett, chair of the West Midlands Tourism and Hospitality Advisory Board, said:

“The West Midlands Tourism Awards return next spring to celebrate and honour the businesses and venues that make the West Midlands an inviting and exciting place to visit. All venues should be extremely proud of their nomination, which followed a detailed process of review before scoring each category’s top three.

“The awards highlight the importance of the tourism businesses across the West Midlands, whose contribution has helped make 2023 a memorable year for visitors to our great region. 

“Awards are a great way of raising standards for everyone by showing just how good service, quality and customer experience can and should be. Those shortlisted are the standard-setters and I congratulate each and every one.” 

Notable highlights in the West Midlands this year - which have drawn crowds to the region - have included the dramatic Men’s Ashes series first Test match at Edgbaston Stadium. The NEC became the first venue in the UK to host The FRIENDS Experience, giving fans the chance to recreate their favourite scenes from the show. This summer, the Black Country Living Museum launched its 1940s to 1960s high street, offering visitors to the Dudley attraction a new opportunity to delve into the West Midlands’ history and step into the hustle and bustle of the past.

Dippy the Dinosaur marched into Coventry this February, with the life-size replica of a Diplodocus carnegii skeleton moving from the Natural History Museum to make its home at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum until 2025.

It has been a record year for the West Midlands, with tourism contributing £14.1 billion to the region’s economy in 2022, attracting 141.2 million visitors and supporting 131,932 full-time equivalent jobs.

The 2024 West Midlands Tourism Awards will take place in the region in the new year, with sponsorship opportunities available to support the event. For more information, contact

    It is very interesting to watch the finalists of such awards. I believe that tourism is a responsible job. I love to travel, but lately I haven't been anywhere for a long time due to an endless series of writing assignments. Yes, I also have difficulties completing written assignments and I turn to I have been looking for a similar company for a long time and finally found a reliable one. The fact is that I was guaranteed the confidentiality of my personal data. They do not disclose their customer names, email addresses, phone numbers or credit card information to third parties. This speaks of responsibility. Sorry for going a little off topic.

    I would also like to work in the tourism sector. I really love traveling and also helping people. And it’s nice to receive such awards. True, I’m studying now and have absolutely no time to study other niches. I'm glad I have help Nursing papers are a problem for me, let alone the dissertation I had to write. So, I turned to professional writers and they, unlike other writing services, cover all topics related to nursing. I think this is important. They also gave me a good discount. I was very happy and my mood improved.
