The search is on for London’s most outstanding small businesses

The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018 are now open and small businesses in London have until 12th January 2018 to enter for free. 

FSB London celebrated the best of business at our awards earlier this Summer (our 5th awards) – and now the race is on to see who will take the prizes in 2018.

The awards are designed to celebrate the efforts of small firms.  At a time when small businesses in London are being squeezed by the cost of doing business – particularly with significant business rate increases in 2017, these awards will celebrate the stoicism and the best talent in London and show how diverse and creative businesses are. And it is a great marketing tool.

The awards will celebrate the best of London’s small businesses and their vast contribution to both regional and national economies. The Greater London area winners of 12 award categories will be announced at an award ceremony in March and will then go forward to the national UK FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards final, where the overall FSB UK Small Business of the Year 2018 will be announced, in May 2018. 

Steve Warwick FSB regional chairman for London, said: “For a chance to be recognised as the best small business in London as well as in the whole UK, I’d encourage all small businesses to enter the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards. SMEs are a vital part of London – contributing so much to the economy and making our region a more exciting place in which to live, work, study and visit.”
