Leamington Business Awards open for entry!

Local businesses are now invited to enter the 2017 Leamington Business Awards, sponsored by The Box Factory.

This year, the categories have been overhauled to allow a wider range of companies to celebrate their successes. The event has already attracted support from a broad range of sponsors including Bravissimo, The Royal Priors Shopping Centre, Trelawny SPT, Aubrey Allen, IAPS, Lodders, BID Leamington and Lloyds Bank. As well as showcasing Leamington’s business achievements, the event will also raise money for two chosen charities – Helping Hands and Love Leamington.

Entries are being sought in ten categories including Innovation of the Year, Business and the Community, and Customer Service Excellence. For the first time, the awards will feature dedicated Non-profit and Employer of the Year categories, while popular awards such Independent Business of the Year, Outstanding Achievement, Young Businessperson and New Business of the Year will be returning. Deadline for entries is 25th June.

Neil Price, Managing Director of The Box Factory, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Leamington Business Awards. Entering awards is a great way for businesses to celebrate their achievements and we hope to be inundated with entries in recognition of the fantastic business community we have here in Leamington.”

Winners will be announced at a black tie award ceremony at The Pump Rooms, which will feature a drinks reception, three course dinner and entertainment.

The Leamington Business Awards is a non-profit making event. It was originally set up by photographer, Karen Massey, and is now organised on behalf of the town by Harrison Beale & Owen Chartered Accountants and Financial Advisers.

Mark Ashfield, Managing Director, HB&O, said: “We are delighted with the support and enthusiasm already shown by local businesses for the 2017 Leamington Business Awards. We wish all entrants the best of luck with their submissions and look forward to a wonderful evening of celebrations in November.”
