On 30 May the most prestigious annual business event in Somerset’s business calendar will launch for the ninth year. Celebrating businesses of all shapes and sizes, across a variety of sectors, the Somerset Business Awards highlights positive business activity and stimulates growth across the county.
The Awards will be officially unveiled at the Network Central event at Bridgwater College. The Network Central exhibition is free to attend and welcomes all Somerset businesses to find out about the Awards.
Rupert Cox, CEO of the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, who organises the Awards, says, “It is no surprise that year on year we see an increase in the number of high quality entrants from within such a flourishing and innovative business community. The Awards showcase Somerset’s real assets on a regional and national basis. We are delighted to welcome a new category (Young Professional of the Year Award), new sponsors for 2013 – Porter Dodson, Job Seekers Recruitment Ltd and A.C Mole & Sons – and we are looking forward to a highly successful and affluent year for businesses!”
With a thriving track record, Somerset Business Award winners often go on to achieve bigger and better things following their success at the Awards. Winners of the Service Excellence Award in 2012, Samantha Cooper from Cooper Associates, says, “From a business perspective, the Award has certainly propelled us further forwards. Our award proves to both our current and prospective clients that we provide an excellent level of service, which is consistently delivered.”
