Hull Daily Mail Business Awards

The Hull Daily Mail and Hull Live Business Awards celebrate the very best of business across the city and East Yorkshire.

It gives companies of all sizes – from pioneering start-ups to the powerhouses which drive the region’s economy – a chance to be recognised and proud of the work they do.

The categories represent businesses from all sectors and industries – from technology and innovation to green energy and hospitality.

And it’s not just businesses which are celebrated. The Business Awards also recognise individual talent, whether you are an entrepreneur who has launched a business and grown it successfully, or a star employee who has stood out from all others.

The awards also remind us that Hull and East Yorkshire is a great place to live, work and do business.

They toast success, celebrate achievement and highlight successful and innovative businesses doing great things right here in the region.

This year hosted by BBC’s Louise Minchin, the awards will culminate in November with a glittering black-tie event at Hull’s Doubletree by Hilton hotel.
