Following the Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement regarding the roadmap to ease COVID-19 restrictions, the South West Business Leader Awards revealed that it would go ahead as an in-person event on 23rd September at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol.
The organisers have also said that only those vaccinated against Covid-19 – or with a medical exemption – can attend, making it the first event in the UK to announce this requirement publically.
However, alongside the event in Bristol, the 2021 event will also going ahead via a world class virtual option – so those that can’t attend can watch along at home or the office.
The event organisers made this decision to ensure that anybody who is still shielding, vulnerable, not confident to come out can still enjoy the region’s leading business event.
Founder of the Business Leader Awards, Andrew Scott comments: “Since the coronavirus pandemic struck, the business world has been devastated – and many have suffered personal tragedies.
“Therefore, to make sure that everyone can enjoy this year’s event, we will be providing both an in-person and digital chance to take part in this year’s prestigious events.
