Make 2018 more Awarding

January 22, 2018 4:14 pm

Invest Ashfield & Mansfield - The area for growth

Throughout the year, we promote a number of different awards to local businesses.  If you’ve never even considered applying for a business award, then 2018 could well be the year for you.  Why not take another look at the benefits of applying for an award?  You’ll be surprised at how successful some local businesses already are.  And, don’t worry, there are plenty more opportunities available.  We’ll try to keep you posted of all the latest opportunities during the rest of the year.

CHAD Business Awards

Did you know that Invest Ashfield & Mansfield sponsored last year’s business awards?  Almost 170 people attended this glittering black tie awards ceremony, hosted by Sam Ogrizovic.  The top honour went to O’Connor & Co Removals, crowned Business of the Year.  Indeed, we had already supported this company through our grants programme.  Find out more about our grants.

Alternatively, check out a full list of the winners here.  But just because the 2017 awards have ended, don’t feel that you have missed the boat.  After all, these awards are held annually so there will be another opportunity in 2018.  Nearer the time, we’ll publish a news alert promoting this opportunity but in the meantime you may want to check out the CHAD Business Awards website.
