Now in their 14th year, the awards champion businesses that stand out from the crowd and celebrate excellence across all business sectors, from big companies to sole traders.

It is all change for the awards in 2019, with new categories for best marketing campaign, exporter and product of the year. The importance of showcasing the local business community will be rewarded in Ambassador of the Year, with Leader of the Year showcasing the importance of growth through developing your teams.

The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony on 27th June at St Mellion International Resort. The final winner will be chosen for the first time by a public vote with entries closing on the night for “People’s Choice” award from all the finalists.

The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth and Skills Hub is again organising the awards on behalf of Cornwall Development Company. The Growth and Skills Hub provides an independent and impartial signposting service to help businesses grow through specialist support and training.

“We are honoured to have been handed the Cornwall Business Awards baton last year. We were keen to keep the awards fresh and relevant, so we have introduced new opportunities for businesses to enter with a broad range of awards as well as local people to show their support by getting the chance to vote for their favourite companies.” comments Stu Anderson, Operations Director of the Growth and Skills Hub.

It is completely free to enter, and businesses have a whole three months to get their entries in with the application person running from January to the end of March.  Everything is online with a brand-new application platform. Sign up to receive reminders on our newsletter.
