Tuesday 14 January saw the tenth anniversary of the Alan Rogers Awards – a ceremony that recognises the endeavours and achievements of a number of the European campsites that feature in our guides.
The Awards took place at the prestigious Vakantiebeurs in Utrecht and candidates from over 3,000 sites and holiday parks were considered, with input from our dedicated assessors, our head office team and, of course, our readers.
There were eight categories for which one winner and two runners up were announced, as well as the Alan Rogers Special Award, which is presented to a campsite that has suffered significant setbacks and coped admirably under difficult circumstances. The 10th and final award is the readers’ award, chosen by readers of the guides.
A resounding success, the event saw campsite owners from all over Europe commended for their ability to provide holidaymakers with a warm welcome and outstanding service. The winners were as follows:
