The finalists of East Midlands Chamber’s 2016 Business Awards in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire have been unveiled.

There are eleven categories in each county this year and the winner of the overall Business of the Year award in each county will be chosen from among the individual category winners.

Winners will be announced at black-tie gala dinners at the King Power Stadium, Leicester, on 2 September, the Nottingham Belfry, on 9 September and The Roundhouse, Derby, on 16 September.

Scott Knowles, the Chamber’s Chief Executive, said: “Congratulations to all of the shortlisted finalists.

“As always, we had a bumper crop of entries and our sponsors had a difficult task in whittling the entrants in each category down to a final three. We have a good cross-section of businesses represented this year and they all deserve their place on the list.”

The winners in each county will go on to compete in the British Chambers of Commerce’s regional business awards for the East Midlands, with those that win then progressing into the BCC’s national awards in November.

Scott added: “The fact that so many businesses are doing so well is a strong indication of the robustness of the private sector across the three counties and the Chamber is proud to be able to highlight not only their successes but also the strength of business here.”
