Wigan Business Awards 2009

by Paul Foster, Local Manager for Wigan

I'm delighted to announce that nominations are now open for the Wigan Business Awards 2009.

Despite the economic climate Greater Manchester Chamber is committed to supporting and celebrating local businesses and we're urging businesses from across the Borough to get involved and benefit from the publicity and kudos associated with the Awards. Wigan Borough businesses need to shout about their successes and along with our main sponsors RBS, we're glad to help them do that.

The range of categories this year ensure that there is something for everyone, with awards as follows:
  • Business of the Year
  • Family Business of the Year
  • Small or Medium Enterprise of the Year
  • Most Innovative Business, Entrepreneur of the Year
  • Employer Supporting Apprentices Award
  • Employer of the Year Award
  • Continuing Professional Development Award - for those firms who demonstrate a commitment to training staff
  • ‘We’re Backing Wigan’ Award for businesses who have secured publicity for themselves and helped to raise the profile of the Wigan borough.

You can find out more about the categories and download a nomination form here.
The closing date for entries is Friday 14th August with the Awards themselves being held in November. Short listed entrants will be invited to meet the panel of judges and will gain significant publicity via the event programme and local press in the run up to the event.
