As sponsor of the Service Excellence category, we were invited to attend the official launch of the Somerset Business Awards 2017 in Taunton.
Inspired businesses had the opportunity to find out about the individual award criteria, speak to businesses about their experience of the Awards, and receive insider tips and advice for entering. As a two-time previous winner of the Service Excellence Award, we had plenty of advice to share with local businesses looking to enter this year.
Dale Edwards, CEO of the Somerset Chamber of Commerce – organiser of the Awards – officially opened the Awards, saying: “Year on year we receive more and more entries which is testament to the recognition Somerset Business Awards provides. The two new categories for 2017 open the awards to even more potential winners and we are hugely proud to be able to honour successful businesses within Somerset with these accolades. We actively encourage all businesses to enter and share their fantastic work from within the county.”
The Awards culminate with a spectacular black-tie ceremony, taking place on Friday 20 October 2017, at Wellsprings Leisure Centre in Taunton.
The Awards are free to enter for all Somerset-based businesses. To enter, and for further information, please visit: www.somersetbusinessawards.org.uk. The Awards will officially close for entries on Monday 21 August 2017 at midday.
