SBC launch 2012 Business Awards

Scottish Borders Council is inviting companies across the region to nominate themselves for a 2012 Business Excellence Award.

Reflecting the diversity of local businesses, this year’s categories are intended to acknowledge and showcase business success and entrepreneurial activity across the region.

The eight categories are: start-up/new business of the year (open to firms who have been trading since October 2009); technology and innovation of the year; international business of the year; marketing campaign of the year; tourism business of the year; retail and town centre business of the year; employer of the year; and green business of the year.

As well as receiving valuable media exposure during the competition period, each of the shortlisted companies will have the opportunity to showcase their company and achievements at the annual award ceremony on March 23 at Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels, when the winners will be announced.

Local businesses are being urged to visit www.ourscottishborders.com/awards to review the criteria for each category.
