Entries Welcomed For Belfast Business Awards

Entries for the 2020 Belfast Business Awards are now open.

Employers who believe their firm is currently at the top of its game or excelling in one area of business are urged to submit an entry and gain recognition with the very best the city has to offer.

Hosted by Belfast Chamber, the awards are firmly established as a benchmark for excellence in today's highly competitive business environment.

Whether a company offers extra special marketing, has an excellent customer service team that goes above and beyond or takes an age-friendly approach to business, all entries will be welcomed.

Sponsors, local dignitaries and more than 150 key members of the local business community united in the Grand Central Hotel Observatory to launch the annual awards last week, with this year's event based on the 'Best of Belfast' theme.

CEO of Belfast Chamber Simon Hamilton encouraged local firms to apply and 'down tools' for the night to showcase their talents and share their success.

Mr Hamilton said: "This city may be small, but our reputation for excellence is known right across the world. We are immensely proud of the many businesses and organisations which are doing trade on a massive scale and we as Belfast Chamber want to give them the best platform we can for recognising and rewarding them for their efforts.

"Belfast has huge talent, the warmest of people, hospitality that is second to none and I look forward to celebrating this at the awards which are the highlight of the Belfast Chamber calendar."

Entry is free and available online. The event will be held in the fabulous Crowne Plaza Hotel, Shaws Bridge on Friday 22 May 2020.
