Manchester Evening News Business of the Year Awards 2019


And there’s no better way than to compete for honours at one of the most prestigious events in Manchester, the Manchester Evening News Business of the Year Awards.

The search for the stars of our business world started in February and culminates in a glittering award ceremony in November at the Principal, Manchester.

This is a perfect opportunity to showcase your achievements. So take the chance to show how proud you are of the men and women in your team who have helped to create the success of your business.

The awards are open to all kinds of organisations. Last year’s event saw business in manufacturing, leisure, retail and technology among the winners.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing you at the awards ceremony in November.
