Cornwall Plus is a Finalist in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2021 for the International Experience category, a fantastic achievement especially in these challenging times. The team is honoured to be chosen and is looking forward to the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 25 February when the final results will be announced.

The team has fostered effective international relations by actively participating in international and global travel trade fairs to network and better understand international markets and the cultural needs of visitors, to bring summer language schools and special interest groups to Cornwall.

Last year, Cornwall Plus gained the ‘We’re Good to Go’ Industry Standard by VisitEngland and achieved a Silver award in the Green Tourism Accreditation Scheme, which acknowledges their commitment to being responsible, ethical and sustainable. This assessment recognises the positive action taken to reduce the impact of Cornwall Plus on the environment and the accessible and inclusive measures taken to support visitors and staff.

There have been recent enhancements to the Cornwall Plus team, with a strengthening of the service following amalgamation with the Universities’ Events team and the appointment of Lorna Sullivan to the new position of Head of Operations (Events, Conferences & Summer Accommodation). We wish Lorna, the very best of luck in her new role.

The team is delighted to welcome guests back this summer and room bookings will be open very soon.
