SPONSORS, judges, previous winners and potential entrants gathered at a networking event to discover more about the 2013 Fenland Enterprise Business Awards.
About 30 members of the Fenland business community attended last Thursday’s event at the Boathouse Business Centre in Wisbech.
Archant Herts & Cambs events manager Sarah Scott gave a short presentation explaining the rationale behind the 13 categories chosen for this year’s business awards, offering tips to make your entry stand out from the rest.
She said it was a great opportunity for businesses to show off their capabilities and the awards were an essential ingredient in the development of new enterprises and offered positive encouragement when recruiting staff.
Editor John Elworthy told guests the annual dinner, held at the Braza, in March, on October 11, was the pinnacle of the year’s business awards campaign.
“Our job is to set the scene – which our team does spectacularly well,” he said. “But it is the momentum of the awards themselves which are what the evening is about.
“We are looking forward to another engrossing set of nominations and those who do win will know they have been judged against some of the best in their respective businesses.”
