The Showcase Awards celebrate excellence and innovation at Racecourses around Britain, with Goodwood’s Carnation Wall being selected as the best #TopSpot of the year. #TopSpots are standalone initiatives, submitted to the RCA via Twitter, that improve the customer experience.
The independent judging panel were particularly impressed with how the carnations provided such a beautiful welcome to the Qatar Goodwood Festival, with gentlemen presented with a carnation button hole upon entry.
The Awards followed on from the daytime programme of seminars and idea sharing between racecourses, which also featured guest speakers from Arsenal FC, Appletiser, Quintain, Channel 4 Racing and Two Circles.
RCA Chairman Maggie Carver commented, “The Showcase & Awards have yet again proved that British Racecourses are constantly innovating to ensure that the customer experience is as good as it can be.
“The depth of quality within the submissions this year is perhaps the strongest it has ever been, so it is a genuine mark of excellence to be crowned a winner- congratulations Goodwood Racecourse.”
