The next 18 months are set to be an exciting time for the UK’s small businesses and the self-employed as FSB launches a brand-new business awards scheme.
The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards will promote and recognise innovation, enterprise and accomplishment among the UK’s 5.5 million-strong small business sector.
The 2018 awards will be open to entries from all small businesses and the self-employed across the UK in July. There are more than 10 award categories, and entries are welcomed from 12 geographical areas. Each area will hold its own impressive award ceremony, with the winners going through to the national finals.
Dave Stallon, Commercial Director at FSB, said: “As the UK’s biggest and most relevant business group, it’s right that FSB leads on what are set to become the most sought-after national business awards. FSB continues to have a strong regional, as well as national, footprint and this is reflected in the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards.”
Each area award ceremony will be linked to a business seminar, with opportunities for networking and gaining new business skills.
The area award ceremonies will take place from November 2017 to March 2018, with the national finals held in May 2018.
