We have won Tourism & Leisure Business of the Year at West Wales Business Awards
FBM Holidays has been honoured with the accolade for Tourism & Leisure Business of the Year at West Wales Business Awards, held last night by Media Events Wales in Llanelli.
FBM Holidays were announced as winners during a black-tie event held to mark businesses in various categories and that promotes and covers the region of West Wales, taking in Carmarthen, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. Established as part of the FBM Group, FBM Holidays have been letting holiday accommodation in the West Wales region as far back as the end of the 20th Century (1899), and were recognised not only for an exceptional year of business in 2018 but also their commitment to promoting the wider region of West Wales as part of their business exploits.
We were up against stiff competition in the Tourism & Leisure category but eventually walked away with the top accolade for tourism and leisure services in the region, given the fantastic year of growth and levels of bipartisan promotion the firm has given to West Wales during a mesmeric 2018. The holiday letting agency brought on a record number of holiday properties to the business in 2018, adding to their growing portfolio of cottages, seaside apartments, townhouses and rural lodges across all three former Dyfed counties. A large aspect of the awards is not only how the business has developed, but also how the business is helping to promote the wider region as a whole.
Last year, the team from FBM Holidays spent a lot of time with large industry-leading business representatives from companies like HomeAway and Airbnb, discussing how they could help promote the West Wales region. It is hoped that these wider discussions and a better understanding of the area, amenities, and services that surround tourist destinations will have a positive impact on the local economies and drive more people to visit the area in general, where there is so much to offer.
We’re very happy to have started off 2019 in such a fantastic way, and look forward to continuing the rest of 2019 in much the same way.
