The best-performing businesses in the town are set to be crowned at tonight’s Doncaster Business Awards.
The Origin Broadband-sponsored ceremony, organised by Doncaster Chamber and now in its 17th year, takes place at Doncaster Racecourse this evening.
The awards mark the end of a busy year in style, with reception drinks and canapés, a four course meal, and an after party including live band. The ceremony will once again be hosted by journalist and presenter Louise Minchin.
Last year more than 800 guests attended, with this year on course to be a record-breaking year with ticket sales in high demand and a 10 per cent increase in the number of businesses that entered this year’s awards compared to 2014.
Dan Fell, chief executive officer of Doncaster Chamber, said: “This is yet another record breaking year for entries and I am delighted that so many local firms – of all sizes and sectors – have chosen to enter our prestigious business awards this year.
“It is crucial that businesses do not shy away from shouting about their successes. Not only is celebrating success beneficial from an individual business’s point of view, it also positively contributes to the image of doing business in Doncaster and breeds confidence in the local economy.
“We look forward to celebrating their achievements and marking the end of another great year for business in Doncaster. I would also like to thank all our sponsors for their on-going support of the chamber and business excellence in the town.”
Winners and runners up will be announced during the ceremony.
