Jan 18, 2018 | Blog|Uncategorised

You’ve heard of the BAFTAs, but let us walk you down the red carpet and introduce you to the next biggest award ceremony to reach the South of England, the BAPTAs!

The awards allow people to celebrate the town’s rising stars; as well as other businesses and individuals who have dedicated their time and livelihood to making sure the area in which we live and work remains a top UK tourist destination.

For the last 12 years it’s been about Bournemouth but this year the team have added Poole to the running order, making the event bigger and better and which will now be known as ‘The BAPTAs’ – The Bournemouth and Poole Tourism Awards.


The flagship award ceremony praises the amazing personalities, services and businesses that make Bournemouth and Poole’s tourism great. When it first launched, there was nothing to commemorate those who had contributed to the town’s success. Realising that this needed to change, the Bournemouth Tourism Awards were created by Route PR and the Tourism Board.

Categories include the Large Hotel Award, the Specialist Dining Experience Award, the International Cuisine Award, Best Retail Experience, The Family Eating Experience Award, Best Night Out Award, Unsung Hero Award, The Afternoon Tea Award, Best Bar Personality, and so on. There are so many exciting categories for you to nominate your place of work, colleague or friend. As an Estate Agents in Canford Cliffs, offering property for sale in Sandbanks, Branksome Park, Lilliput, Bournemouth, Poole and surrounding areas, as well as Lettings in Poole, Bournemouth and beyond, we witness first-hand the hard-work and effort people put in to making our town a better place.


As a leading Estate Agent in Poole, we are behind many of the nominees, in particular Jon from Dorset Cruises. Show your support for this start-up business and cast your vote before the closing deadline. Click here to VOTE.

There is no cost to participate and the Awards are run independently. Saxe Coburg will be there on the night to support the event and business all-stars!
