The third North Worcestershire Business Awards, organised by North Worcestershire Business Leaders (NWBL) and North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration (NWedR), are now open for entries.
There are nine award categories, the winners of which will be presented a glass trophy at the awards dinner at Hogarth’s Stone Manor Hotel near Kidderminster in November.
All businesses based in North Worcestershire – covering Bromsgrove, Redditch and Wyre Forest districts – are encouraged to view the nomination categories online and select which one is most appropriate for them to enter. This year there are also three Worcestershire-wide awards, which means they are open to businesses across the whole of the county.
Melanie Hawkett, from NWBL, said: “It’s great to launch the 2022 awards. Local businesses have once again shown their support by sponsoring the event so enthusiastically. This year we are focusing on celebrating the rising starts in businesses across the area and we urge anyone with a favourite business or business leader to get their nomination in as soon as possible.“
Jane Doyle, from NWedR, said: “This promises to be a fabulous celebration of the North Worcestershire business community. We are asking businesses to self-nominate or enter their favourite local company for a chance to win an award. We have enthusiastic sponsors and the team at Hogarths Stone Manor are once again working with us to make the awards and the event a sparkling success.”
