Chamber Unveils 2015 Business Awards Finalists

Posted on 23 July 2015

Business awards shortlisted candidates eventThe finalists of the East Midlands Chamber’s 2015 Business Awards in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire have been unveiled.

Twenty-three organisations in Derbyshire, 25 in Nottinghamshire and 19 in Leicestershire have been selected across ten categories in each county this year, with the winner of the overall Business of the Year award in each county – sponsored by rail engineering company Garrandale – to be chosen from the individual category winners.

The winners will be announced at black-tie gala dinners at Athena Leicester on 9 September, the Roundhouse, Derby, on 17 September and at Goosedale Conferencing and Banqueting, Nottingham, on 24 September.

The winners in each county will then go on to compete in the British Chambers of Commerce’s regional business awards for the East Midlands, with the chance to progress into the BCC’s national awards in November.

Scott Knowles, the Chamber’s Acting Chief Executive, said: “Congratulations to all of the shortlisted finalists of the very first Chamber Business Awards in Leicestershire.

“The Chamber awards are the only ones in the region delivered purely by business, for business and are also the only awards which enable the winners to go on to compete in the British Chambers of Commerce’s regional and national awards.

“As always, we had a bumper crop of entries and our sponsors had a difficult task in whittling the entrants in each category down to a final three. We have a good cross-section of businesses this year which all deserve their place on the list.

“The fact that so many businesses, from a wide range of different sectors, are doing so well is a strong indication of the strength of the private sector here and the Chamber is proud to once again be able to highlight and celebrate their successes.”

The full list of finalists can be viewed below, along with a slideshow of images from the finalists celebration event:
