2015 Virgo Awards Presented!
The 2015 Virgo Travel and Tourism Awards were presented at the Annual Awards Luncheon held at the Berry Hill Resort and Conference Center on April 30, 2015. The competition was judged by a panel of four out-of-state peers who made their determinations based on the quality of the submission, economic efficiency, and the economic or community impact. Once again, Tubby Kubick of Chocklett Press helped us find outstanding judges who turned in results reflecting the high quality of submissions and a very close competition.
The 2015 competition debuted new categories which were designed to more accurately reflect the type of cutting edge promotional campaigns being waged state-wide. These awards pay tribute to individuals, groups, businesses and destination marketing organizations that have significantly contributed to the Commonwealth of Virginia's economy through tourism promotion and development. The winners of the 2015 VIRGO Awards for their respective categories are listed below:
