Eastbourne Business Awards

PRESTIGIOUS EASTBOURNE BUSINESS AWARDS IS BACK
FOR 2014 WITH NEW HEADLINE SPONSOR

The Federation of Small Businesses is this year’s headline sponsor. Darran Hathaway, the regional Chairman said: “We are extremely proud to be the headline sponsors this year. The Federation is celebrating its 40th anniversary and what better way is there to celebrate than headlining one of the most prestigious Business Awards in East Sussex.”

The purpose of the Eastbourne Business Awards is to offer formal recognition of business excellence, providing a much needed boost to the business community of the town. Eastbourne is full of forward thinking businesses and the Eastbourne Business Awards offer the perfect environment in which to celebrate their achievements.

All kinds of businesses enter for these awards and many different kinds of achievement are celebrated. Success may be due to the combined efforts of a management team and staff, working together to offer exceptional customer service, competitive pricing and outstanding attention to detail. Alternatively some businesses owe their success to the efforts or vision of just one person and these awards offer the opportunity to highlight their achievement. For those businesses which acknowledge the importance and value of recognition, the Eastbourne Business Awards are a must!

The 2014 Awards categories include the Medium Business of the Year Award for companies with 10 to 50 employees and Large Business of the Year Award for companies with 50 plus employees, offering an even greater opportunity for businesses of all sizes and styles and the opportunity to showcase their achievements over the past year. In total there are 15 categories of awards.

It is very important for all who wish to enter to be aware of the fact that in 2012 new rules were set in motion which meant that sponsors of the awards were no longer allowed to enter their companies for an award - a decision that has been hugely popular and these rules are to apply again for the 2014 Eastbourne Business Awards.

The awards ceremony will take place at the Grand Hotel on the 21st November, following a delicious three course banquet lunch. An acknowledged highlight in the business calendar, this year’s event will once again have two hosts and they are Beverly Thompson (formerly of BBC South) now with Southern Water and Ian Palmer of BBC South.
