GIVING BUSINESSES IN PLYMOUTH THE RECOGNITION THEY DESERVE
Plymouth Business Awards 2020
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 2020 as the Plymouth 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 next years awards once again a memorable celebration of all that is great in Plymouth.
