They have all come together to create a competition which acknowledge and celebrate those companies, organisations and individuals who are helping to build the Brighton brand.
Mike Gilson, editor of The Argus and Chair of the Awards, commented: “The Brighton and Hove Business Awards have been celebrating the brightest, most successful and most unique businesses from across the City for the last decade.
“The leaders that drive these businesses demonstrate that combining passion and business nous with fun and individuality can be a real recipe for success. It is Brighton and Hove’s personality that puts it among the UK’s favourite cities, and that personality is reflected in our business community.”
The judges will be looking for companies and organisations that really capture the spirit of Brighton and Hove.
