Llanelli Star - - West Wales Business Awards - Chris Pyke

THE short­list for the highly pres­ti­gious West Wales Busi­ness Awards 2019 can now be re­vealed.

The event, run by WalesOn­line along with sis­ter papers the Car­marthen Jour­nal and the Llanelli Star, recog­nises and cel­e­brates the di­verse range of busi­nesses in Car­marthen­shire, Pem­brokeshire and Ceredi­gion.

The black tie event will take place on Fri­day, Jan­uary 18 at Stradey Park Ho­tel, Llanelli, with doors open­ing at 6.45pm.

The event will be com­pered by jour­nal­ist and TV pre­sen­ter, Frances Dono­van and spe­cial guest speaker will be Da­mon Rands, CEO of Wolf­berry Cy­ber Se­cu­rity.

The judg­ing panel met at the end of Novem­ber to de­cide on the short­list.

The judges were Swansea Even­ing Post, Car­marthen Jour­nal and the Llanelli Star ed­i­tor, Jonathan Roberts, along with Uni­ver­sity of Wales Trin­ity Saint David busi­ness lec­turer, Jes­sica Shore, and Nigel Wil­liams, Castell How­ell fi­nance di­rec­tor, who were last year’s over­all Busi­ness of the Year.

Mr Roberts said: “The West Wales Busi­ness Awards is a hugely im­por­tant event on the cal­en­dar for the re­gion and a great way to start the new year.

“The di­verse cat­e­gories show the myr­iad busi­nesses we have in the re­gion, some­thing we should be very proud of.

“Ev­ery year I am im­pressed by the busi­nesses nom­i­nated, and it is al­ways a dif­fi­cult task to whittle down the en­tries for the short­list.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to all those short­listed and we look for­ward to wel­com­ing you to Stradey Park Ho­tel in Jan­uary.”
