Now in their 20th year, the North Tyneside Business Awards are going from strength to strength. North Tyneside Business Forum is delighted to be organising the Awards again, to support an outstanding range of businesses from the local area.
What started as a low-key, afternoon awards presentation is now a prestigious, glamorous awards ceremony, held once a year and to our knowledge, are the only awards specifically for a local authority area that still run in the North East.
Taking place on the evening of November 30th, the awards celebrate the huge contribution that businesses make to the local economy, making North Tyneside a great place to live, work and visit, while also recognising the success of individual businesses based in North Tyneside.
David Bavaird, Chair of the North Tyneside Business Forum, commented: “The annual awards are now a well-established event in the business calendar and are a real opportunity to celebrate the hard work, enthusiasm and ideas from so many in our business community.”
Television presenter and freelance journalist, Kim Inglis, will host this year’s awards ceremony and a charity-casino gaming event will be run to raise money for Daft as a Brush: Cancer Patient Care. The charity has been chosen by the family of former Business Forum chairman David Rose, who sadly passed away in May.
A total of 18 businesses have been named as finalists across six categories.
This year, the Business Forum introduced a brand new award, Heart of the Community, which recognises businesses that have gone the extra mile for their community. Over 70 public nominations were received for the new award and voting is now open on the dedicated website.
