Family-owned businesses interested in the 2019 Midlands Family Business Awards, only have until midnight tomorrow to enter into the annual award show.
Deadlines for entries into the UK’s independent not-for-profit, annual family business awards show were extended by two weeks to cater for the high volume of late requests and applications.
Alongside the ten free-to-enter categories, to mark the 10th anniversary of the award show, there will be three new award categories up for grabs.
Next-Generation Family Business Leader, Construction & Property Excellence and an extra-special category called Rising Stars are the exciting new additions to this years’ show. The Rising Stars category celebrates and supports newly-established businesses with good future prospects by providing a full-service professional growth support package for 2020.
The awards, which are organised by Nottingham-based family run business, The Wilson Organisation, will take place on the 7th of November at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium, and is expected to attract over 300 guests.
Highlighting the impressive turnout, Group Managing Director Charlotte Perkins said: “We’ve experienced a high volume of interest in the awards this year, and so this extension will allow for late requests and entries to come through.
“Our aim for the awards has always been to shine a light on the region’s talented and successful family businesses and to play our part in creating a community of likeminded and supportive individuals.
“Now in our tenth year, we are immensely proud of how the awards have grown year on year, and I believe that is a testament to the volume and calibre of brilliant firms in our region and the fact that family businesses embrace celebrating their success and that of others.
“We urge family firms not to miss this year’s awards, which serve to highlight the great work of companies and put the spotlight on hard work and dedication. We want to wish all the businesses who enter the best of luck.”
The main sponsors for the 2019 awards are OrderWise, Buckles Solicitors, PwC, Shakespeare Martineau, Streets Chartered Accountants and Ward Recycling.
