Wirral Business Awards 2017 is now open Applications are now being accepted for the Wirral Business Awards 2017, a competition highlights and celebrates the achievements businesses make to local, national and international economic growth.
 
Organised by Wirral Chamber of Commerce, the business awards are free to enter, and open to all Wirral based companies (with a registered Wirral trading address) or Wirral Chamber of Commerce members. 

There are ten awards to choose from, each reflecting the success of Wirral's outstanding business activities, making it a location which welcomes and supports business success – www.wirralbusinessawards.com

The award categories include Business of the Year (3 categories), Business Person of the Year, International Trade, Sustainability, People Development, Newcomer of the Year, Rising Star, and the Outstanding Business of the Year.  Closing date for the online award entry form categories is midday on Monday June 5th, following which the judging panel, comprising representatives from Wirral Chamber of Commerce, KPMG, DLA Piper and Wirral Council, will decide which companies or individuals will go forward to the awards final. 

New for this year will be the way in which the Customer Service Award winner is chosen. The judging panel will shortlist four companies from all entries received and will then go to a public online vote to determine the winner.

Paula Basnett, CEO of Wirral Chamber of Commerce said, “Each year the creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship demonstrated in the award applications we receive simply gets better and better. Wirral Business Awards ensures that the talent and success of our award nominees is recognised and quite rightly rewarded. 

She added, “We feel that the award categories reflect fantastic opportunities for all types of businesses, large and small, and I would encourage all companies and individuals to enter this year”
