Racecourse is the winner again

Have your say

Doncaster Racecourse and Exhibition Centre is celebrating being first past the winning post again with another success at the Doncaster Chamber Business Awards.

The racecourse team collected the award for Business of the Year in the £3m turnover and over category. For the first time ever the event took place at Doncaster Racecourse itself and was attended by more than 600 guests from the business community.

The racecourse team was praised by the judges for reinventing the sporting venue as an entertainment centre that can compete with the best in the UK.

Judges were particularly impressed with the relationships developed with the local hotel industry and other entertainment venues, showing a concern not only for their own success but for that of the local economy as a whole.

Last year the venue took away the award for Outstanding Contribution to the Doncaster Economy.
