North East

ENTRIES FOR NORTH EAST ARE NOW CLOSED

 

The first North East FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards in 2018 were a great success, both for FSB and for small businesses across our Area - and we want the 2019 Awards to be even better!

Whatever business or sector you operate in there are categories you are sure to find of interest.  If shortlisted by our judges, you will be invited to attend our Area finals event on Tuesday 26 March at The Sage Gateshead where the ‘best in class’ across all categories for the North East in 2019 will be crowned.  Win there and you will be through to the UK finals for a shot at the UK title in your chosen category or categories.

We know that there are some shining stars out there in the North East business community, but there are also others not yet on the radar who deserve the limelight.  These awards are open to anyone in business in the North East, from serial winners and household names in our area to new starts looking for the recognition which can help to drive them on to bigger and better things.
