While the business owners and their staff who triumphed in their categories will rightly have a particular spring in their step today, all the hard-working people who entertain millions of visitors to Yorkshire each year through their unstinting work in the tourism industry have great reason to be proud of their achievements. With tourism bringing billions into to the local economy each year, attracting visitors to our stunning coastline, beautiful moors and historic cities, everyone in the region is a winner.
