The gala event (aka the Dons) will take place on 8th November at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London, where finalists will gather to make their presentations before an expert panel of judges. The finalists represent some of the UK’s best-known businesses, and the 18 different awards categories reflect the broad range of business initiatives that deserve recognition.
It’s a pleasure to introduce two new categories this year – the Well-Being at Work Award and Innovation of the Year – as well as a reorganised SME category.
We’re also taking applications from potential judges to join our line-up! To find out more about becoming a UKBA judge, click here.
The finals, chaired as ever by Don Hales, are also a unique networking opportunity, with hundreds of leaders from a diverse range of companies gathering to share best practice ideas and celebrate outstanding business initiatives.
The UK Business Awards is accredited with the prestigious Gold Awards Trust Mark from the Independent Awards Standards Council. As always, we are proud to have Cranfield School of Management, Barnardo’s and the Customer Experience Magazine as our partners.
Awards International CEO Neil Skehel said:
We’re all very excited to see which companies enter the Dons this year. Last year the breadth of quality on display was astonishing, both in the written entries and the presentations, and the event itself was a great success. Any business looking to share their own success story with the world should enter these awards!
