This Friday, award entries for the 2018 Business Leader Awards will open for businesses and individuals looking to pick up one of the 17 prestigious awards on offer.

With preparations well underway for the event, the Business Leader team are expecting to receive a record number of applicants – especially as there will be two new awards this year.

Manufacturing Business of the Year and Family Business of the Year will make their first appearance at the South West’s most prestigious business event of the year.

The independent panel of judges will have a busy task of selecting a shortlist for each category.

The event itself will take place on Thursday 27th September at Ashton Gate in Bristol and will be attended by over 650 of the region’s most prominent and respected business leaders.

If you are interested in entering the awards, please visit https://www.blawards.co.uk/ and follow the application process.
The awards are free to enter and are open to businesses of all sizes and operating across all sectors.

Founder of the Business Leader Awards, Andrew Scott said: “With just days to go until the awards are open to enter, I am expecting to see a record number of businesses throw their name into contention to win on the night.

“The South West has so many successful businesses across all sectors and sizes and our awards are a celebration of the success we are seeing across the region.”

There are still some sponsorship opportunities available for some of the awards categories. This offers an opportunity for businesses to put their name in front of the region’s most influential business people.

If you are interested in entering the awards, buying tickets to the event, sponsorship, or any other enquiry, then please contact 0117 325 7779 or email editor@businessleader.co.uk.
