BGTW International Tourism Awards 2022 –

Winners and finalists

The BGTW International Tourism Awards (ITA) scheme recognises excellence in tourism projects in three categories:

  • Best Wider World Tourism Project
  • Best Europe Tourism Project
  • Best UK and Ireland Tourism Project

Guild members really do travel the world, reporting back on projects and initiatives they think deserve notice. Some projects have cost millions and are well-publicised; others are simpler community projects that take just as much effort and love.

For the ITA, projects are proposed by members. Once verified, nominated projects are put out to BGTW members for voting.

The winners were announced at the BGTW Annual Gala Awards 2022 on Sunday 6 November at Riverside Studios, Hammersmith, London.
