After officially launching on Wednesday 6th June at Hummingbird Restaurant, Shoreham Airport, the ceremony will take place on Friday 16th November at The Pavilion, Marine Parade, Worthing.
These prestigious awards celebrate business excellence within the Adur and Worthing region, and have become the feature business event across the area.
Organised under the umbrella of the Adur & Worthing Business Partnership (AWBP) as a not-for-profit organisation, the Adur & Worthing Business Awards are organised by a committee of successful local business people, these include Electronic Temperature Instruments, JSPC Computer Services, Seagull Travel, Worthing & Adur Chamber of Commerce and Adur & Worthing Council. All winners from the Adur & Worthing Business Awards will be automatically shortlisted for the same category in the JP South Business Awards 2018.
Last year’s sell-out event was attended by over 370 guests all representing local businesses and included the town’s Mayor, Alex Harman and Mayoress, The Rt Hon, Baroness Virginia Bottomley as well as other distinguished guests and Council delegates. The 2017 winner of the coveted Overall Business of the Year award went to Gemini Print Group. Judges awarded the dedicated and innovative print company this title as they deemed them the organisation who had shown the most enterprise, passion and drive in taking their business forward.
