Nominations now open to find Thanet’s Tourism Superstar

Who is your Thanet Tourism Superstar?

The hunt is on to find Thanet’s Tourism Superstar.

The Isle of Thanet News has teamed up with Thanet council’s tourism team to find that special person who consistently goes the extra mile to deliver excellent customer service and to make a holiday experience to remember for visitors.

The Thanet Tourism Superstar will be a person who works within the tourism and hospitality industry in Thanet, including employees and volunteers within  tourist attractions, hotels, guest houses, bars and cafes, train stations and restaurants.

They need to be passionate about where they work, knowledgeable about the isle and happy to talk about this outside of their work remit.

Nominations open today (August 9) and run until Sunday, 23 September.

A judging panel will select a shortlist from all the nominees, then public vote will decide who will become the Thanet Tourism Superstar.

The Thanet Tourism Superstar will be announced on October 26 and will then be nominated in VisitEngland’s 2019 Tourism Superstar Awards.
