Echo and Business Post Regional Business Awards

The Liverpool ECHO, in association with our acclaimed monthly magazine Business Post, is delighted to announce the return of 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. So now it is with great pleasure, pride and huge anticipation that I ask you to please prepare your entries.

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.

Last year we had a huge number of entries and some outstanding winners and shortlisted companies. This year we hope for even more again as we seek to celebrate business achievement and excellence across a range of sectors.

Those successes quite simply deserve to be applauded and rewarded publicly. So please enter now – and tell our judges why you and your business deserves attention and acclaim.

We would be delighted to receive your nomination, and we hope very much to see you at the awards ceremony this summer.
