The best of Sussex commerce was celebrated at the 2019 Sussex Business Awards.
Organised by Platinum Event Management, the awards ceremony, now in its 31st year, is the largest event of its kind and the most prestigious in the region.
Around 500 of the county’s leading businesspeople gathered for the sell-out event at The Grand Brighton on December 5th. Guests were treated to a sumptuous three-course dinner and entertainment before the awards ceremony, brilliantly hosted by hilarious TV comedian and author, Dominic Holland.
Mike Herd, Chair of Judges, said: “The gala dinner is the night of the year where the community comes together to celebrate business in Sussex. It is a fantastic evening recognising and acknowledging the outstanding work businesses in our region are doing. I’d like to congratulate all the winners and shortlisted finalists of this year’s awards.”
