Remember how we said that the BAHBAs were coming and that anyone could enter and businesses really should give it a crack? Well now is the time.
Next Friday is the deadline for getting entries in. It really isn’t hard (or expensive) – businesses can enter up to three categories. Entry costs (ex VAT) are £50 for one entry or £100 for up to three. If you want to see the different categories click HERE.
You can also make nominations for Outstanding Brightonian free of charge. This award is for an individual who has made the greatest contribution to the city over the last 12 months.
Winner will be announced at a fulfilled awards night at Proud Country House on Thursday 14 September 2017 and all finalists receive one free place! If you haven’t been to a BAHBAs awards night, you really need to come along and see what the fuss is about – it’s one of the best business parties of the year.
Now in their twelfth year, the BAHBAs are firmly established as the city’s premier business awards scheme. The awards benefit from independent assessment by an expert panel of judges, and recognise all-round business excellence, in all its forms. And we know this because we both sponsor the awards AND help judge them, and can totally vouch for the integrity and searching approach that goes into the judging process.
Winning or even being shortlisted for a BAHBA delivers great opportunity – it’s a way to really highlight that your business is serving up some special vavavoom.
