Norfolk Business Awards 2020 - Entry Deadline Extended

For 30 years, the Norfolk Business Awards have celebrated and rewarded business excellence. Amidst challenging times for many businesses as we enter this milestone year, it seems more important than ever that we recognise the strength of our business community.

We hope that you will put your hard work, resilience and adaptability centre stage by submitting an entry. The awards are currently open for entries, and in our 30th year, as ever we will search for the very best of the best of what our wonderful region has to offer. Despite current challenges the awards are here to celebrate the strength of the Norfolk business community.

Following feedback from the business industry, we are pleased to extend our entry deadline and will accept entries up until midnight on Sunday 20 September – giving more businesses the opportunity and time to submit their entries.

We have no doubt that once again this year we will be able to the tell stories of invention, brave leadership and good, old-fashioned hard graft. But what is already abundantly clear is that 2020 is going to be unique. At the start of the year no-one could have predicted the impact the virus would have on business. But equally no-one would have predicted some of the incredible ways our business community rose to the challenge. Whether it was changing production to make vital PPE for frontline NHS workers or rushing through new technology and training a whole workforce to stay connected from home. Of course we are not yet out of the woods. The challenges of this pandemic will continue for the foreseeable. But these awards are the perfect opportunity to celebrate the ways in which your business has survived and thrived.

This year our headline sponsor is Barclays – a fitting company to have in a year when banks had to come to the rescue of many firms. We would like to pass on great thanks to Barclays and all of our category sponsors over this period. We might be battling through a tough time for businesses but it is right to recognise excellence, and all of our sponsors are certain to support this.

Our entry partner is Reflection PR – if you need support with making the best of your entry visit or call 01603 219191.
