Hull Daily Mail Business Awards 2017
By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 4 Oct 2017
The Hull Daily Mail Business Awards is back next month, and this year’s impressive shortlisted businesses and individuals have been revealed.
From small companies and fledgling start-ups to major manufacturers and firms employing hundreds of staff, the awards will be shining a light on successes across the region over the UK City of Culture year.
Now in its 17th year, the awards have firmly cemented its position as a highlight in Hull and East Yorkshire’s business calendar.
This year, it will culminate in a glittering ceremony at the KCOM Stadium on November 16, where popular businessman and Bafta-winning TV personality will entertain guests with his inspiring tale of defying market conditions to launch the Bank of Dave.
Over the past 12 months, the region has played host to scores of good news stories, with jobs and wealth being created in factories and shop floors, business parks, offices and retail premises in every corner of the patch.
Managing director of the Hull Daily Mail, Mike Pennington, said: “Growing and maintaining a business is not easy.
“The economic sands may be shifting in our favour, but challenges remain, and businesses need more than just determination and sound financial sense to succeed – they need a lot of hard graft and passion.
“As Hull celebrates its UK City of Culture year, all eyes are on the region. The city has been placed on a global stage like never before.
“Now is the chance to show others what we have all known for a long time – that Hull and East Yorkshire has a lot to be proud of, and our businesses, employers and entrepreneurs are key to this.
“The Hull Daily Mail Business Awards will once again prove the excellence and ingenuity that exists right here on our doorstep. Also watch out for a few surprises on this very special night.”
Our area is home to some of Yorkshire’s biggest companies, but equally it is a hotbed of talent for entrepreneurial outfits of all shapes and sizes.
The shortlisted nominees have exemplified the excellence and ingenuity that often goes unnoticed in the region, and the awards on Thursday, November 16 will give these organisations the chance to celebrate their hard work.
