Catterick Racecourse is delighted to announce they have been named as a Finalist for the prestigious Showcase & Awards, hosted by the Racecourse Association (RCA).
The Showcase & Awards is the marquee event of British racecourses that annually celebrates first class customer experience in partnership with Moët Hennessy and Racing Post.
Catterick Racecourse has been listed as a Finalist in the Events category. From the five Finalists the winner will be revealed at the Showcase & Awards ceremony on 16 November at Newbury Racecourse.
The Events award celebrates superb events that provide memorable days out and attract new customers to racecourses. Entries were asked to demonstrate a defined strategy and excellence in execution, along with a clear link to the racecourse brand and encouragement of return visits.
Catterick Racecourse particularly impressed the judges through their Racing Recruitment Day initiative. The event, held on 2 June, was designed to raise awareness of the different career options within the racing industry and provided both an educational and memorable day for their race goers.
Fiona Needham, General Manager at Catterick Racecourse, said: “We’re thrilled to be nominated as a finalist for this year’s awards, and to be recognised alongside some great events! We will be holding a careers themed race day again next year, and we’re excited to build upon the success of this year’s event."
Stephen Atkin, RCA Chief Executive, said, “I am delighted for Catterick Racecourse for their success in being named a Finalist at the 2017 Showcase & Awards.
“It is a highlight of our year to see all of the quality Showcase Awards submissions go before the judges to measure the impact and growth of the initiatives that our racecourses have delivered and clearly Catterick have enjoyed an excellent year.
“I extend my congratulations to the team for their hard work in securing this achievement and wish them the best of luck for the ceremony at Newbury on Thursday 16th November where we’ll see if they can join our esteemed list of winners."
