Chamber Business Awards

We have always been a strong advocate and champion of local businesses and what better way than an awards ceremony celebrating business excellence throughout our innovative region. The awards have already proven popular with the wider business community and many major companies have already signed up as sponsors. We will be using the latest, state of the art technology platform that allows entrants to seamlessly complete their application online in their own time, without having to worry about where they are in the process as it allows them to save as they go along.

Winners will automatically enter the national and highly regarded British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) awards. Now in their 15th year they celebrate the role of ‘business in delivering growth and prosperity for the UK and local communities’.


In addition to your local Chamber events running throughout the year, the BCC have a calendar of events. Find out more here.
