The deadline to take advantage of the special Early Bird discount offer to enter the 2019 UK Business Awards is fast approaching.
Potential entrants in this year’s event have until May 17 to save £100 off the standard entry price, ahead of what is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for the awards known across the UK business landscape as ‘The Dons’, in honour of Don Hales, chairman of event hosts Awards International.
The overall entry deadline is July 5, with finalists set to be announced on July 12. Those shortlisted will then attend the Finals on November 8 at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank, where they will give presentations before an expert judging panel with the aim of securing a win at the day’s gala ceremony.
This year’s UK Business Awards full judging line-up is still taking shape, and among those scrutinising entries will be Resolve owner/Manager Mark Ashton; Managing Director of onefourzero, Fleur Hicks; and consultant, coach and author Janine Woodcock.
Finalists will compete across 17 categories, including Entrepreneur of the Year, Best SME, Innovation of the Year, and Best New Business. The finalist with the highest judges’ score will also be crowned Overall Winner.
Speaking ahead of the Early Bird deadline, Awards International CEO Neil Skehel said: “We are all about celebrating and rewarding business excellence, and the UK Business Awards have become one of the country’s premier platforms to do just that.
“This will be the fourth year of The Dons, and will be the most significant to date, with a wide range of categories across B2B and B2C disciplines. As ever, the event itself will be a fantastic opportunity to network with business peers and share best practise, as well as celebrate our category champions, and I cannot wait to welcome our finalists and guests to London.”
