Stockport Business Awards 2017 now open for entry


It’s that time of year again; the Stockport Business Awards are back and open for entry. Last year a record number of entries were received and organisers are hoping to uncover even more successful businesses again in 2017.

Andrew Baggott, of organisers Clarke Nicklin commented: “Last year we were celebrating our fifth award ceremony, it was a fantastic evening and although I’m sure it will be difficult to top, I think we’ll manage it!

The event celebrates all that is great about business in Stockport and I’d encourage anybody to take a look at the categories and submit a nomination. There’s something for everyone and you’ve got nothing to lose by entering the awards, but everything to gain. Winners tell us that the recognition and raised profile they gained by being shortlisted for an award was great for business and great for staff too.”

·         Business of the Year (over £5m)

·         Business of the Year (£1-5m)

·         Business of the Year (up to £1m)
