The Times Business Awards 2018 is set to be an even bigger and better event this year, with new categories alongside some old favourites. There are ten options ranging from Young Entrepreneur of the Year to the Service Excellence award and Employee of the Year, all celebrating the wealth of talent in our local area from established businesses to start-ups. 

In 2016 the Times held its first Business Awards that proved to be a considerable success attracting more than 150 entries from some of the 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 night at Salomons in Tunbridge Wells that saw the work of local entrepreneurs celebrated along with the achievements of businesses of every size.

In 2017, Times Local Newspapers added the Times of Tonbridge to its publishing portfolio, and as a result even more businesses and enterprises were attracted to the awards for 2017.

More than 200 finalists and guests enjoyed a night of celebration at the 2017 gala awards ceremony, that were an ideal platform for networking and building new business partnerships.  Being involved, whether it be by sponsoring or entering or just attending the gala evening is certain to raise the profile of your company. 

Sponsors are guaranteed editorial coverage in both editions of Times Local Newspapers.
