The Plymouth Live Business Awards Are Back For 2021

It has become one of the biggest events in the business calendar in Plymouth and now seen as the key opportunity to celebrate companies and promote the good work being done in our city.

The former Herald Business Awards returns again in 2021 as the PlymouthLive Business Awards which will continue to honour those driving Britain’s Ocean City forward. We will celebrate those businesses who contribute economically, culturally, socially as we strive to become Europe’s premier waterfront destination.

The awards highlight a vast range of Plymouth’s enterprises over a broad, and growing number of sectors, applauding many of the city’s prime success stories.

Working together in partnership has been critical to much that has been achieved in Plymouth already, and will be crucial in shaping its future.

We hope you and your company will be able to join us in making our 2021 awards once again a memorable celebration of all that is great in Plymouth.
