A panel of judges will soon consider the many entries to the 10th annual Mercury Business Awards.
The awards are all about celebrating success, whether yours is a one-man company or a mammoth in the business world. Once again we will give firms across the area the chance to shout about their work.
There are nine categories to enter this year, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors Hegarty LLP, South Kesteven District Council, Duncan and Toplis, Greetham Valley and Viking Signs.
The awards will be given out at a glittering gala dinner to be held at the Greetham Valley Hotel, Golf and Conference Centre in Wood Lane, Greetham, on Friday, May 15.
Mercury editor Mark Edwards said: “It’s our great pleasure and privilege to reflect some of the many outstanding success stories achieved by businesses in Stamford, Rutland, Bourne and the Deepings.
“This year will be even more special as we celebrate 10 years of the region’s best business awards.
“The Mercury Business Awards are designed to celebrate the hard work, professionalism and achievement of the area’s businesses and the people who work for them, so it is well worth taking the time to put your company forward for one of our accolades.”
