“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.”
