There is still time for Wyre businesses to showcase their recent successes by submitting a nomination for the Wyre Business Awards before they close on 27 October.
The main event sponsors for 2017 are announced as NPL Estates, Regenda Homes and Links Signs and Graphics.
The judging panel for the awards includes representatives from Radio Wave, Marketing Lancashire, BBC Radio Lancashire, Myerscough College and Boost Business Lancashire.
This year’s event to celebrate business success across Wyre will be held at Marine Hall, Fleetwood, on Thursday 30 November.
Nominations are invited for fifteen different awards that recognise all types and sizes of businesses. New award categories for 2017 recognise rural businesses and market traders, alongside the regular categories for different sized businesses, new businesses, the tourism sector and employer of the year.
“I would like to see as many Wyre businesses as possible join in our celebration event by submitting nominations or coming along and enjoying a good night out with their colleagues and the Wyre business community. I am pleased to see that we have a great judging panel lined up and also a big thank you to the sponsors” said Councillor Peter Murphy Planning and Economic Development portfolio holder at Wyre Council.
The event will be a black tie gala dinner with tickets available from Marine Hall priced at £35 or £300 for a table of 10.
There are a limited number of sponsorship package opportunities still available from £75 to £800 offering the opportunity of inclusion in publicity to the Wyre business community before, during and after the event.
