Last chance to enter Mendip Business Awards 2019

You can soon purchase tickets for the 2019 Mendip Business Awards ceremony and enjoy an evening with like-minded business people to celebrate the best enterprising talent across Mendip.

The awards have been open for entries since January and this is the last chance for businesses and organisations to put themselves forward to become potential award winners.

It's a fantastic opportunity for Mendip businesses to show the rest of the district what their enterprise is doing for the local economy as well as showing their future aspirations.

Businesses can enter more than one award category which could generate a boost especially if they become a finalist or winner of multiple awards. 

Last year, Walton Press Ltd won 'Small Business' and 'Family Business' of the Year. Managing Director, Sandy Smith said: "Our double success in the Awards, gave a huge confidence boost to the team and certainly raised our local profile. As a result we have gained a number of new clients.

"I would definitely encourage Mendip businesses, whether large or small, new or established, to enter the Awards - it's not as scary as it sounds and can actually help you to focus on your business, your past achievements, your current profile and future goals."

Business have until midday on 29 March 2019 to apply. The awards ceremony takes place at the Royal Bath and West Showground on Thursday 30 May 2019, with tickets for the ceremony going on sale soon.
