Visit Gloucestershire is confirmed as headline sponsor of the SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards for 2022, pledging its support to the county’s biggest awards in SGGLA’s fifth year.
Nominations are now open via soglos.com/awards-lifestyle, with SGGLA continuing to celebrate the very best lifestyle sector businesses and charities in and around Gloucestershire.
It’s a mission that Visit Gloucestershire shares as the county’s Strategic Management Organisation, striving to create a partnership of hospitality and visitor economy businesses and develop a responsible and sustainable tourism sector for Gloucestershire.
Following an incredible SGGLA 2021, which saw the awards return to its real-life format to recognise the achievements of Gloucestershire’s resilient lifestyle sector, SGGLA 2022 is set to be even bigger – with more opportunities for local businesses to get involved.
There are a number of diverse new categories, including Art Gallery and Café of the Year, as well as the chance for a special individual to take home the new Outstanding Contribution Award for going the extra mile in their organisation.
SGGLA 2022 will culminate in the anticipated awards evening – this year held at DEYA Brewing Company in Cheltenham on Wednesday 29 June 2022, with partners Oasis Events and The Woozy Pig helping to make it the celebration of the year.
