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.

The 11th Business Awards will be launched in July 2020, with the full details including Gala Awards Evening date announced in May.

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. This was held on Thurs 7th November at Pirelli Stadium last year, and details will be announced in the coming months re. the 2020 event.

Want to be part of it?

Full details of the 2020 Award entry process will be announced in May, with the official launch in July. Entry deadline will be in September, and the Awards evening in November.
