Ashford Business Awards

15th December, 2017

We had the honour of being the Platinum Sponsor for the Ashford Business Awards 2017, held at Ashford International Hotel.  The evening was attended by over 150 people, all invited to celebrate the achievements of those nominated.

We were overjoyed to be part of an event that encourages and recognises local businesses, at all levels.

The awards started by our very own Tina George (who was also a judge for two categories) being invited to the stage to say a few words by the presenter, Paul Andrews.  Tina gave a lovely speech, thanking everyone involved and expressing how impressed she was by the companies she visited as part of her duties for the judging panel. 

We are proud to support Kent businesses through our platinum sponsorship of the Ashford Business Awards.  As a local business ourselves, we understand how important it is for companies to achieve recognition.  As such, we are delighted to be a part of these awards which encourages businesses of all sizes.”

We’d like to give a special thank you to each and every one of the businesses who put themselves or others forward for an award, Best Business Events for planning an amazing evening, the judges of each category and all of the sponsors for contributing towards such a celebration.
