The sports market research agency is sponsoring the Sports Tourism Award at the ceremony, which is described by the organisers as the "Oscars" for the capital's tourism industry.

Members of the public can vote for entries in a wide range of categories ahead of the Visit London Awards event, which is sponsored by Eurostar.

Stephen Proctor, managing director of SMS, said: "Our research has shown that sports fans behave very differently to the more traditional tourist and have a significant impact on a host city's economy.

"Our support for Visit London with this award reflects our commitment to improving the understanding of requirements and motivations of sports fans and in ensuring a proper financial return on the investment made in staging these events."

Voting is still open through the awards website for some award categories, including:

Business Venue of the Year, sponsored by Confex Group

Best Visitor Information Initiative

Sustainable Tourism Award, sponsored by Green Tourism for London
