About South Holland Business Awards

The countdown has begun to recognise and reward outstanding businesses in South Holland, at the annual South Holland Business Awards 2016.

The yearly celebration of business achievement saw nearly 200 people gather at Springfields Events Centre last year – but organisers of this year’s event are already promising that 2016 will be bigger and better.

First launched in 2013 the awards celebrate excellence in eight different categories.

As well as announcing the winners, the ceremony is a premier networking opportunity for the whole business community and everyone who works in it.

The gala occasion will take place in the evening at Springfields Events Centre on Thursday 24 November, and includes a three course dinner, key note speaker, live music and entertainment – not to mention a bar and welcome drinks reception area.

The awards are hosted by Spalding and District Area Chamber, which is part of the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce.

Simon Beardsley, Chief Executive of the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, said:

Every year the sheer cross section of applicants for the business awards highlights the breadth of businesses in the South Holland area – from major companies to SMEs. The awards served as a celebration and showcase of the most inspiring examples of how South Holland businesses and organisations are performing, innovating and developing their staff whilst also making a contribution to the community.

Phil Scarlett, President of the Spalding and District Area Chamber said:

Winning can differentiate you from the competition, and generate some fantastic media interest; it can also help boost staff moral and even recruitment. But most importantly of all, it positions you as the best in your field, which is attractive to customers. South Holland’s business community has a lot to celebrate, so we’re bringing together people who share our passion to deliver another ‘must-attend’ award ceremony, and we’re encouraging as many businesses as possible to enter because you have to be in it, to win it!
