Mercury Business Awards is a sell-out with two months to go!
All tickets for this year’s Mercury Business Awards have sold out with nearly two months to go until the event.
The winners of the 10 categories will be unveiled at our awards ceremony at Greetham Valley Hotel on Friday, September 21, which will also be attended by our sponsors.
After last year’s event was a huge success, the Mercury took steps to add additional tickets but now all tickets for the event, which will be hosted by Rutland Radio’s Rob Persani, have sold out.
Events and sponsorship coordinator Sharron Marriott said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the event is already a sell-out and we’re all looking forward to a fabulous evening at Greetham Valley in September.”
At the moment, judges are visiting the shortlisted businesses in each category in a bid to choose the winners.
All the finalists will also be invited to a day of filming with the videos shown on the big night.
Across our 10 categories, there are three finalists in each category - each judged by a business person from the Mercury area.
