Business has never been more important.
As the country pulls itself out of one of the deepest recessions in living memory, business, and especially local medium and small businesses, have been helping on the road to recovery.
That’s why our annual business awards are so important, to recognise and pay tribute to the men and women setting the gold standard in the business world.
If you have achieved success, growth, innovative ideas, excellent customer service, have outstanding staff or the best team, or perhaps you have gone eco-friendly, then the 2014 Bedfordshire Business Excellence Awards offer you the chance to be recognised and rewarded.
It is free to enter and entry is open to all Bedfordshire based businesses. As well as having the opportunity of recognition for your business, the evening is most enjoyable and is the ideal place to network with other businesses within the Bedfordshire area.
