For 2018, the Oceana Hotels are backing the BAPTAs by sponsoring the ‘Creative Concept of the Year Award’, having won an award back in 2016 and gaining finalist status in 2017 themselves!

Oceana Hotels & Leisure provides accommodation for the inspired traveller, and unique events and leisure for local neighbourhoods in the greater Bournemouth & Poole area.

Kevin Wood, Head of Europe Operations for Oceana Hotels says:

“At Oceana, the CUMBERLAND, OCEAN BEACH, SUNCLIFF, ROYALE & MAYFAIR, we work to deliver heartfelt and unique service in an ever-changing hospitality world. Whilst keeping an eye on the planet, human rights and general wellbeing of our team and guests. Our hospitality culture embraces everyone, and we seek to provide the inspired traveller and leisure seeker with a unique experience.

This year we have added the BAPTA’s as one of our local support partners and have chosen ‘Creative Concept of the Year Award’ as our sponsorship, as this sits at the heart of what we are about. Without creativity and new ideas, we would not continue to succeed, our guests would not have unique experiences and our industry would falter. The BAPTAs and similar events give us all a chance to celebrate the innovation in Bournemouth & Poole, as well as getting together for some well-deserved fun.”

Do you have a unique concept that is bringing business to your door? How do you stand out from others? Has your concept increased sales, opened new markets, or created more repeat customers? The Creative Concept of the Year Award celebrates those within the tourism industry with an inventive flair.

The tourism operator or business must have realised and implemented their idea within January 2017 to December 2017. You can enter the BAPTAs today at
