2023 Business Awards will launch in July!

And we are back!

The Steering Committee are delighted to announce that the 13th annual Business Awards for East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire will launch and be open for entries from Monday 24th July!

We want it to be bigger and better than ever, so it is great to confirm that the partners and sponsors from 2022 have renewed their support (see below). This is recognition for the success of the awards and their value to the business community across East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire.

We are also delighted to confirm that Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce will play a greater role this year in the running and administration of the Awards. It has always been the intention of the Steering Committee to work closely with professional business organisations, and the experience and expertise of the Chamber will ensure that the awards continue to evolve and grow for the benefit of the business community.

The key dates for the 2023 Awards are listed opposite. Entries will be accepted until Friday 22nd September (a list of the award categories is available on The Awards page).

The Steering Committee and Judging Panels will visit the shortlisted Finalists during October, with the Gala Awards Evening confirmed for Thursday 9th November, once again at the prestigious Pirelli Stadium, home of Burton Albion FC.

Some of the highlight pictures from the 2022 Awards Evening are shown below, and we will keep you updated on developments for this year over the next few months. Please get in touch using the Contact page if you need further information or want to be involved.
