Entries are flooding in for the Brighton and Hove Business Awards (in association with The Argus) and it is essential that companies effectively showcase their achievements to stand out from the crowd.
Now in their eleventh year, the BAHBAs are firmly established as the city’s independent premier business awards scheme.
With free independent assessment from an expert panel of judges, the Awards recognise all-round business excellence. Winning, or even being shortlisted, for a BAHBA delivers priceless opportunities.
The Kitchen Store, an exclusive UK designer, supplier and installer of Manhattan Kitchens and Paula Rosa Kitchens, was named Fastest Growing Business in 2014 and went on to become Best Independent Retailer in 2015 – and managing director, Alan Margetts, has no doubts about the value of winning a BAHBA.
Alan said: “Winning a BAHBA award has really helped our Brighton & Hove store gain an added element of creditability and helped build trust with our customers. In our experience being a part of these Awards genuinely raises your profile and shines a light on the strengths of your business.”
