WHAT ARE THE KNOWSLEY BUSINESS AWARDS ?

Now in its 17th year, the Knowsley Business Awards is the largest awards ceremony of its kind in the Liverpool City Region and an established date in business and social calendars.

Attracting 850 guests from across the North West and beyond, the awards celebrate Knowsley’s outstanding business community, the energy, determination and commitment of individuals and organisations that are driving forward Knowsley’s economic success.

WHY ENTER ?

Knowsley is a remarkable and unique place. Its business community is ambitious, collaborative and flourishing.

The Business Awards have become an unmissable event, with last year’s ceremony attracting more than 850 guests from across the North West and beyond.

The Knowsley Business Awards provide a fantastic opportunity to showcase your businesses, your successes and your accomplishments. You can demonstrate this success to your existing customers and suppliers and also open doors to new opportunities. You can reward staff and gain independent recognition of your business achievements and the wider promotion and marketing of the awards will gain positive exposure and raise the profile of your company.

LAST YEAR’S WINNERS

TAKE A LOOK AT ALL 2018 WINNERS

The Knowsley Business Awards are one of the highlights of our annual calendar here in Knowsley. We have a remarkable business community and the awards are a real celebration of the wonderful organisations and individuals who are dedicated towards helping Knowsley’s economy to grow.

We have an abundance of success stories to share and the awards ceremony provides is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together, appreciate the efforts of so many businesses and individuals and take a moment to reflect on the year gone by. It is an event not to be missed in my opinion!

Edward Perry, Chair of Knowsley Place Board

I am delighted that nominations for this year’s awards are officially open. I know that many organisations are already chomping at the bit to submit a nomination, so the fact that we have this interest even before the nominations are live, is a testament to how popular and successful these awards have become.

There’s a wide range of categories for this year’s awards, ranging from small businesses, to larger organisations and even independent businesses, so there really is an opportunity for everyone to enter. I would encourage people to take a look at the categories on the website to see which one is most suitable and fill in the nomination form.

Cllr Graham Morgan, Leader of Knowsley Council

Knowsley Safari is a perfect backdrop to what is Knowsley’s most prestigious and highly anticipated business event in the city region calendar.

The reputation of the awards grows each year as does the prestige associated with winning.  With 850 guests in attendance last year the shortlisted companies gained the recognition they deserved in front of a high calibre business audience.

The success experienced here in Knowsley is a powerful endorsement to why companies should enter and attend!

Lesley Martin-Wright, Chief Executive Knowsley Chamber / Head of Business Growth and Inward Investment, Knowsley Council

We are proud to be a sponsor of Knowsley Business Awards and recognise successful local businesses. We are also excited to become part of Knowsley’s business community where we will be developing up to 800,000 sq. ft. of new employment space at Knowsley Business Park, delivering significant employment and investment opportunities in Knowsley and the wider city region.
