Northern Ireland Giant Spirit Awards 2022

We are delighted to launch the Tourism NI Giant Spirit Awards – a new and simplified industry excellence awards programme that will build on the legacy of the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards which ran for over forty years..

It has been more than two years since our last awards….. and so much has changed, so we believe that the time is right to reward the resilience and determination of all those who work in the tourism industry in our region.

The NI Giant Spirit Awards 2022 will :

  • Recognise and celebrate the resilience and Giant Sprit of all those who work in the tourism industry
