The awards will celebrate and reward exceptional small businesses from across the region. There are 23 categories open for entry, including sector specific categories, business of the year categories and awards for customer service, environmental best practice and export success. Entries are open until 29 September 2017. You can find out more information on the awards process and how to enter here.
The awards champion and recognise the achievements and efforts of small businesses. To win is, of course, a huge honour but even making the shortlist can improve brand awareness and promote your business to new clients, as well as acting as a third-party endorsement for your business. Last year's winners included; Capital Reinforcing, Liberonet, Hitch Marketing, Solid Sheds, Lunya, Antrec and RightTrades.
The awards are independently judged by a carefully selected panel of industry experts and insiders. The judging is a two-stage process, including pre-scoring and face to face judging session to determine the shortlist, and ultimately, decide the winners.
The awards, which are being organised on behalf of FSB by the full-service events agency Don’t Panic events, itself an FSB member, are open to all small businesses within the Merseyside, West Cheshire & Wigan region. Entries are free to submit for FSB members. Non-FSB members will be charged an entry fee of £35 + VAT per entry.
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 7 December at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Liverpool’s famous waterfront, and will attract an audience of around 300 entrepreneurs and small business owners from across the region. Join us for a night of sumptuous food, networking and great entertainment to celebrate and reward exceptional businesses from across the region – and the chance of winning!
