Northern Ireland

ENTRIES FOR NORTHERN IRELAND ARE NOW CLOSED

 

FSB Northern Ireland’s Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018 were a real success, with businesses from right across Northern Ireland lifting prizes in a host of categories. From sole traders, through micro businesses, to those with substantial workforces, the awards attracted a tremendous number and range of entries. 

Hosted by Karen Patterson, who cohosts Good Morning Ulster on BBC Radio Ulster, the awards have already established themselves as a highly valued platform within the small business sector.  The 2019 awards will recognise achievements in 11 categories at a prestigious awards ceremony in the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Shaw’s Bridge in Belfast.

FSB NI Celebrating Small Business Awards offers an excellent opportunity to position your business alongside a high profile and comprehensively marketed event that champions the best small businesses in Northern Ireland. 

The Northern Ireland final takes place on 7 March 2019. Entries will be open to both FSB members and non-members but also to all small businesses across Northern Ireland.

The awards ceremony itself is expected to be a sell-out once again, building on last year’s great response. The event will open with a drinks reception followed by a two course lunch and promises to be an afternoon of celebration and excitement. 

As with last year, the Northern Ireland winners will also be entered for the UK-wide grand final which will be held in London in May 2019.
