The Business Awards were established to showcase and celebrate business excellence across the neighbouring regions of East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire.

There is tremendous connectivity and synergy between the two local authorities (East Staffordshire Borough Council and South Derbyshire District Council), and it was therefore natural for them to partner together and spearhead the Business Awards across the region.

How does it work?

The Business Awards are overseen by a Steering Committee consisting of representatives from the two partner councils and category sponsors, including Dains Accountants, Else Solicitors, Hardy signs, Burton & South Derbyshire College, and Burton & District Chamber of Commerce.

The Steering Committee are also responsible for reviewing all entries and selecting the finalists in each of the categories. Judging Panels then visit each finalist to further understand the business and ‘story’ behind their award entry.

The Finalists are all invited to the gala Awards Evening which is always a sell-out event. We are delighted to confirm that this will be held on Thursday 7th November, once again at the Pirelli Stadium in Burton on Trent, the home of Burton Albion FC.
