Entries now open for the Cornwall Business Awards 2017

The Cornwall Development Company has announced the launch of the Cornwall Business Awards 2017, the most prestigious business awards in the county.

The Cornwall Business Awards are organised and presented by Cornwall Development Company in association with Business Cornwall Magazine and the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce.  The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership are sponsoring the Best New Business Award.

“As these awards enter their 12th year, we continue to be amazed by the creativity and ingenuity of our local business leaders. Every year we uncover exciting new stories about the outstanding successes they have achieved. It is great to be able to show our appreciation for all their hard work and for the vital contribution they make to our local economy” says Colin Dennis, Chairman of Cornwall Development Company.

Any business based in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly can enter one or more of fourteen award categories, which include Best New Business and Best Family Business. Around 300 business leaders will attend the spectacular awards dinner at St Mellion International Resort on Thursday 18th May 2017, which many regard as the most important business event of the year in Cornwall.

Kim Conchie of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the ‘Winner of Winners’ award says: “One of the things I love about the Cornwall Business Awards is that they offer equal opportunities for recognition to all sizes of businesses, from small, owner-managed companies to large scale organisations. It is always really impressive on Awards Night to see the incredible range of businesses operating in Cornwall and to learn more about the talented people who run them.

“No business in Cornwall can afford to ignore the importance of these awards. So I would urge as many as possible to start preparing their entries now. Previous winners have been delighted with the publicity and prestige that winning a Cornwall Business Award has created for their company. In challenging economic times, raising your company’s profile in this way can prove to be even more valuable.”

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP are sponsoring the Best New Business Award in Cornwall award. 

Entries for the Cornwall Business Awards 2017 should be made online and the closing date for entries is midnight on Sunday 12 March.

A full list of the award categories and criteria, and an online entry form, are available now at www.cornwallbusinessawards.co.uk
