Apply today for the 2024 Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards

What are the REYTAs?

The Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards are organised by Visit Hull and East Yorkshire to recognise the significance of tourism to this area and celebrate the quality of businesses and individuals working within it. Now in its 14th year, the REYTAs has 16 awards over a wide range of categories up for grabs for the very best tourism businesses in the region. Entries will be judged via their application and, if shortlisted, by a judge visit. The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at Bridlington Spa on 14th November 2024.

We are working in partnership with VisitEngland and have aligned a number of our categories, and are using a shared online application process. This means that in most REYTA categories, the winners will automatically be put forward, if eligible, for judging in the National VisitEngland Awards for Excellence without any further application.
