This year, The Sussex Business Awards is celebrating its 30th year as the most desired accolade for companies from every sector in Sussex.

These Awards aim to bring to the public eye businesses in Sussex who have demonstrated excellence in development and whose successes are continually growing. There are fifteen awards to be won, which include innovation, tourism and customer service as well as awards for all-round excellence and businesses that exceed expectations. Such recognition offers the ideal springboard for growing businesses in the region.

The Sussex Business Awards can place your business in the spotlight. Previous winners from 2017 have included QED (Sustainable Urban Development) for The Award for Innovation in Business, which is sponsored by us here at the Sussex Innovation Centre, and Bluebird Tea Co. for The Award for Best Employer. Through having your achievements acknowledged, taking part in these awards can be a catalyst for the development and growth of your business both internally and externally.

Held at the Grand Brighton on November 29th 2018, the awards are attended by over 500 of the county’s leading businesspeople, judges and VIPs, offering local businesses the opportunity to network with fellow innovators whilst awaiting the results. It offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate your achievements with colleagues and furthermore be recognised by fellow businesspeople in the region.

The judging panel is formed of representatives from category sponsors and industry professionals such as HSBC and the University of Sussex. For his fifth consecutive year, Mike Herd our Executive Director (and the Sussex Businessperson of the Year 2000) will be returning as Chairman of the Judges.
