Decision time looming in search for award winners
THE entries are in and the judges are working their way through them ahead of meeting to decide the nominations for this year’s Gloucestershire Business Awards.
The event is a celebration of businesses of many shapes and sizes, whether public, private or third-sector, all hoping to be crowned business of the year.
Regarded as one of the most prestigious in the county, it is easy to see why.
Sponsored by Randall & Payne, the awards have made a name for themselves as an incredible night of celebrating success, a place for some of the biggest names in local industry to network, and a celebration of our thriving South West region.
Last year’s event was hosted by Nick Hewer (Countdown, The Apprentice) and we will soon be announcing this year’s special guest.
This year’s event takes place at The Centaur, Cheltenham Racecourse on October 10.
