The Times Business Awards 2017 is pleased to announce that it will be working with the West Kent Partnership, an exciting initiative that supports local businesses, helping them to develop, grow and thrive in a competitive global market:

“We are a strategic economic partnership made up of local business, councils and others working across the Sevenoaks District and the boroughs of Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge & Malling.

Our vision is ambitious and challenging. We aim to sustain a dynamic and well-connected local economy, ensure West Kent remains a key location for business success and growth while providing our local population access to quality jobs and skills development.”

One of the area’s most respected firm of solicitors, Cripps, will also be supporting the Times Business Awards 2017 with their expertise and experience:

“As a law firm serving clients nationally and internationally from offices in Kent and London, Cripps offers the best of both worlds. We’re large enough to have specialists in all key legal areas and small enough to deliver a personalised, partner-led service.

Our business specialists advise on corporate issues and transactions, commercial contracts and intellectual property, employment, disputes, property law and much more. We also offer bespoke personal advice to individuals, families and family businesses.”

Since it launched in March 2015 the Times of Tunbridge Wells has always believed local businesses to be one of the most important issues to report on and inform its readers about.

As a result it has become the respected editorial voice of the town’s commercial core and essential reading for anyone running their own enterprise or looking to invest in one.

In 2016 the Times of Tunbridge Wells held its first Business Awards which were a huge success, receiving over 150 entries, and saw some of the area’s most innovative and successful companies, both big and small, recognised for their exceptional retail acumen and expertise.

The selection process culminated in a sold-out gala ceremony at Salomons in May which saw the work of local entrepreneurs, small start-ups and established family run businesses celebrated.

Earlier this year Times Local Newspapers added the Times of Tonbridge to its publishing portfolio, and as a result will now be inviting businesses and enterprises from this area to be included in our awards for 2017.

Winning will not only raise the profile of your company, it will also boost its credibility and provide a valuable networking platform and essential media coverage.

If you would like to be part of this unique opportunity to showcase your company and state why you feel it deserves to be represented in one of our specialist categories, which include Service Excellence Award and Young Enrepreneur of the Year, then we would like to hear from you.
