EXCITEMENT is mounting as businesses across the county gear up for our Cheshire Business Awards.
Firms from the smallest start-ups to the biggest employers are all keen to win one of our coveted awards.
The county is home to some amazing businesses which have continued to expand and flourish even in these hard times and the Trinity Mirror Cheshire Business Awards help to celebrate their successes.
This year, for the first time, there is an added chance to win a title as we have an extra category for firms to enter. The Green Award is for companies which have applied environmental policies in the workplace or whose products or services have made a positive contribution to the environment.
Now in their eighth year, the Cheshire Business Awards are widely acknowledged as the most coveted recognition of business achievement in the county.
The accolades celebrate the innovation, hard work and team-spirit that makes Cheshire's businesses, from the biggest employers to the newest start-ups, so great.
Nominations can be made until the closing date of July 14. Judging will take place on August 1.
This year the prestigious awards presentation evening on September 16 will take place in the pavilion at Chester Racecourse, alongside the two-day 'Celebrating Cheshire' business exhibition.
The awards dinner is also a social occasion and provides the opportunity to meet business people from right across the county.
