We are fast approaching that time of year when county firms go head-to-head in the battle to win top honours at the Shropshire Business Awards – and we will be there once again!
Eagerly anticipated every year, it’s one of the highlights of the Shropshire business calendar and just seems to get bigger and better.
This year’s awards, the 19th, will be held at Telford International Centre on Friday, 14th June, with about 650 guests expected to attend. The awards are open to every business in Shropshire and winners of 17 categories will be announced on the night.
It’s a prestigious event and a real battle for firms to get shortlisted in the face of such fierce competition – let alone actually win!
We have been heavily involved in the awards for a number of years, visiting every shortlisted firm and recording video clips of each which are then shown at the awards ceremony to demonstrate what each business is all about. So we can proudly say we have produced a video of every winner of every category dating back some time.
Each clip needs to be carefully planned to reflect what the business does and be relevant to the particular category the firm is shortlisted for – quite a challenge in such a short video snippet, but one we are able to achieve after years of experience.
We like to think of what we do as opening a window, albeit briefly, to the outside world on what these successful enterprises have achieved. A video lives long in the memory, even when it is a short one such as this, and it’s a delight to be involved in the awards and be able to play a role in projecting these successful companies to their peers.
The talent and business expertise we have in Shropshire is amazing. These firms are a wonderful advertisement for what our county has to offer and are of major benefit to the local economy. We wish all those shortlisted firms well for the night.
The awards are hosted by Shropshire Chamber of Commerce and double as a charity fundraiser. All proceeds from this year’s event will go to Severn Hospice and Lingen Cancer Fund.
