Two hundered and thirty three of the county's tourism and hospitality businesses entered this year's Carmarthenshire Tourism Awards – a record number for these awards, now in their fourth year.
The Awards ceremony took place at Stradey Park Hotel on the evening of Wednesday 25th November.
The quality of entries this year was exceptionally high - and so a big congratulations goes out to all of those who entered.
"It's very difficult to find out how our visitors find us on the internet. However, when I analyse my statistics with my hosting company, I find Visit Carmarthenshire in the top 10 of referrals. In a Google search it comes on the top page if you use key words like "Bed and Breakfast in Carmarthen". It's important to have another platform where our business can be found online and it really does work for us!"
"The one to one sessions on improving my website were really valuable. Paul Knows what's what and how I am thinking or struggling immediately! I value his input."
"We really enjoyed the Gold award winner visits. They've given us some great ideas and some real practical help. Strangely, one of the most useful things from the visits is that it's saved us a lot of time researching things that wouldn't be practical for us to try at the mill."
