The Mendip Business Awards are back, and this year they are promising to be bigger and better than ever.
Organisations in Glastonbury are invited to enter the awards, now in their sixth year.
The Mendip Business Awards are a unique opportunity to showcase local entrepreneurial talent, and outstanding businesses across the Mendip district.
Whether you’re a winner, runner-up or simply nominated, being part of the event can add credibility to companies, raise their profile through valuable media coverage, inspire staff and provide an exclusive networking opportunity.
Mendip District Council and Strode College in Street are key sponsors for the event that recognises, celebrates and promotes local business excellence. Further sponsors are being sought for the individual award categories.
Cllr Peter Goater, portfolio holder for economic development at Mendip District Council, said: “We’re very excited to start planning the 2020 awards and are looking forward to seeing which of our remarkable Mendip businesses enter this year.
“We’d like to thank Strode College for showing their commitment and support to Mendip’s business community by sponsoring this year’s awards.”
Katy Quinn, principal at Strode College, said: “Our local businesses are at the very heart of our communities, contributing to economic prosperity, opportunities and success.
"We are delighted to be sponsoring this very important event.”
More than 200 people celebrated Mendip’s business talent in 2019. Entering is quick and easy, and you could be joining the very best in business at the Bath and West Showground, near Shepton Mallet, this summer.
Applications are open from Monday January 20 to Friday March 27. Find out more about the Mendip Business Awards, and enter, click on the red button below.
