West Midlands


Our West Midlands FSB Celebrating Small Business  Awards have gone from strength to strength since their inception in 2018 and are proving to be a fantastic success, both at regional and national levels.  Our aim now is to continue this success by making our 2020 awards even better!

Whatever your business and whatever sector you operate in, we are sure there will be at least one category for you to enter.  This year, we have introduced the new category of Self-employed/Sole Trader, making it 12 categories to choose from, in recognition of the many business people who prefer to operate solo. 

If shortlisted, you will be invited to attend our regional final in Solihull in March 2020.  If you are a winner there, you could be heading for our glittering national finals in London in the spring.

We are aware that the West Midlands boasts some of the most talented and innovative small, medium and micro-sized businesses in the UK.  Now we are looking to find the ‘best of the best’ and reward the hard work, innovation and sheer determination that characterises the SME community in this fantastic part of the world.

Start that adventure now and get set to turn your great business into an award-winning one by entering our awards today!  And don’t forget, you do not have to be an FSB member to enter AND entering is completely free!
