This year’s FSB Bedfordshire Business Awards have been declared open to entries from all companies and sole traders in the county with the theme of “optimism and opportunity” for the future.
Bedfordshire’s SME businesses have been at the forefront of the UK’s powerful drive out of the recent recession and the awards are set to provide a snapshot of that amazing positivity.
More than 60 Bedfordshire businesses attended the launch of the awards, which have Everline as their headline sponsor, at Basepoint, Great Marlings, Luton.
The competition is free to enter and open to all businesses based in Bedfordshire that commenced trading before January 2013. They do not have to be an FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) member to enter but they must be sole traders or have fewer than 250 employees at the time of entering. There are a range of categories to consider.
Karen McGeeney, communications director for the FSB Bedfordshire Business Awards, said: “Bedfordshire has been a hotbed for the creation of new companies in the last few years. Firms or sole traders who started out before January 2013 should consider entering these fabulous awards.
“Entering awards is the best kept secret in marketing; they can provide a fantastic return on investment so we urge everyone to fill in the application forms now.”
