Echo and Business Post Regional Business Awards

The Liverpool ECHO, in association with our acclaimed monthly magazine Business Post, is delighted to produce the region’s premier business awards event for 2019.

On Thursday, June 20 this year at the magnificent Anglican Cathedral, Liverpool, we will celebrate and honour the very best in the city region’s business community. 

The Liverpool Echo – Merseyside’s best-selling newspaper and a digital brand experiencing extraordinary audience growth – is delighted once again to be the official media host of the Regional Business Awards.

It is our 25th year, and this year we are delighted to partner with the Liverpool Business School as executive sponsors. Based at Liverpool John Moores University, the school is helping Liverpool and the wider region further establish itself as a centre for academic business studies and excellence.

The development and progression of the Liverpool Business School is yet another key indicator that the city region’s business and economic health remains on a serious upcurve. We’re delighted to have them on board as sponsors – and are grateful too to all of our other award category sponsors for their support again this year.

Tickets are now on sale for what promises to be a fantastic evening of celebration and networking. To take a look at last years awards please click the video below.
