The UK’s most contested and prestigious Business Awards Programme for Chamber Members.

8th July 2024

Posted on Categories BusinessTags , , ,

The Sussex Chamber Business Awards evening was a fantastic celebration of the achievements of our business community. An amazing opportunity to grow your brand, stand out from the crowd, to be seen as a high-performing business or individual, attract new talent, differentiate yourself from competitors and celebrate the hard work and achievements of your employees.

These Business Awards are one of the showpiece events in the business calendar, recognising and promoting the best of British business through a series of regional heats, culminating in a campaign to showcase the winning businesses on an international stage.

Recognising and rewarding excellence in British business, these awards are the ONLY awards programme that enable members to win locally, regionally and nationally.

Business communities work hard to grow and prosper. They have had to adapt to changing circumstances and focus on embracing new opportunities for growth and innovation.

The awards evening was the perfect opportunity to celebrate business achievements, and to encourage and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

We were welcomed by our host, Brendan Cole from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. Born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand, Brendan started dancing at the age of six. At 18 he moved to London, to further his studies and to embark on a dancing career. To support himself and his burgeoning dance ambitions, Brendan worked as a warehouseman, an insurance broker, and a builder! Eventually, in 1999, his dreams came true, and he turned professional. He has been honoured as the Asian Pacific Latin American Champion and also New Zealand Latin American Champion. With his former dance partner Camilla, Brendan also reached the semi-finals of what are considered to be the world’s top four dance competitions. Brendan was an exceptional host and brought energy to the awards evening.

A huge congratulations to all the nominees across all eight categories – those who strive to power ahead towards new horizons while keeping true to the local values of each community. These businesses are at the forefront of their fields with incredible stories to share.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to our Headline Sponsors, Acumen Law and EBISS UK Ltd.

I would also like to extend our thanks to our Welcome Drinks Sponsor, Gatwick Airport and Photo Wall Sponsor, Sussex Sign Company.

The event would not have been possible without category sponsors and judges who took time out of their very busy schedules to evaluate the entries and meet the nominees. Thank you to all our Category Sponsors.

For the first time at our awards, we were honoured to have a Charity Partner. Wolo Foundation is a small local charity helping families in Sussex affected by cancer. Demand for their service is huge, and they have grown exponentially over the last 4 years and now support over 150 families. They collaborate with local businesses, charities and communities to engage with local people, and have become an integral part of the Sussex community – they were last year’s winners of our community champion award. At our awards evening, we were able to raise an amazing £6,800 which is massively needed to support this local charity.

To the right are the winners from our 8 categories. Congratulations to you all on your amazing achievements.

All the best of luck to the winners from the Sussex Chamber Business Awards 2024 who will now be put forward to the British Chambers Regional Awards, before the final stage, the National Chamber Awards 2024.
