DMB Tourism Awards Winners 2022 

On Thursday 10th November the creme de la creme of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole's tourism, hospitality and retail sectors had their successes trumpeted.  


From hotels, cafes and restaurants to attractions, events and retailers every sector was represented and celebrated.  


Craig Mathie, DMB Chair, praised the winners for their 'colossal achievements'.  

"It is fair to say that it's been a pretty crazy couple of years since we last got to celebrate our achievements in person - and there is so very much to celebrate.  Tonight's successes are a testament to the resilience and ingenuity of everyone in the industry."
