Due to overwhelming demand, the organisers have extended the deadline for the Brighton & Hove Business Awards to Friday 30 May.
This year marks the ninth BAHBAs and offers Brighton businesses the opportunity to enter up to fourteen categories.
Previous winners of the Brighton and Hove Business Awards include some of the City’s biggest and best loved names including: Gresham Blake, Dental Health Spa, Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival, The American Express Community Stadium, Hotel du Vin, Infinity Foods, Duke of York’s Picture House, Brighton Festival, Dockerills and Sussex University.
2014 sponsors include Allied Irish Bank, Brighton & Hove Jobs.com, Cardens Accountants, Qualifa, Graves Jenkins, Classic Consulting, Cluttons, Martin Searle Solicitors, Close Brothers Invoice Finance, MDHub, Midnight Communications, Brighton Pier and media partners The Argus, Absolute Brighton and Juice 107.2FM.
The BAHBAs are supported by the Chamber of Commerce, Brighton & Hove City Council, the Brighton Business Curry Club and B&H Tourism Alliance. Tony Mernagh, Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership, will chair the proceedings once more.
“I would encourage everyone to enter and shout about our great Brighton businesses,” says Tony. “Winning an award can really make a difference as both a great marketing tool and a source of employee pride in the company.”
The judges are looking for companies and organisations that really capture the spirit of Brighton & Hove. Innovation and leadership are considered more important than size or revenue.
The search is also on to find the Outstanding Brightonian of 2014 in the Brighton and Hove Business Awards.
Each year the people of Brighton and Hove vote for the person they think has made the greatest contribution to the city during the previous 12 months. The judges are looking for the person who has done the most to improve the quality of life for people in the city.
Previous winners of the title include local entrepreneur, Mike Holland, who was responsible for the restoration of Stanmer House; local DJ Norman Cook and his work within the Brighton community at the AMEX stadium; Sue Addis from Donatellos, for her unceasing local charity work and support of the city’s business community and another proud recipient, Roger Marlowe of Paskins Townhouse, for his work in promoting the Brighton hotel industry.
Most recently Ryan Heal and Martin Perry have also been awarded this prestigious honour.
So who do you think should receive the accolade of Outstanding Brightonian for 2014? They might be an unsung hero or someone who we all recognise.
