North East Lincolnshire Business Awards


We are delighted to introduce you to the 2018 Northern Lincolnshire Business Awards which are NOW OPEN for entries.

We are also very much looking forward to this year’s Gala Presentation and Dinner which will be held at Grimsby Auditorium, Cromwell Road, Grimsby on Friday the 18th of May.

Our Business Awards theme for the Dinner this year is “Beauty and the Beast”. We are sure this well loved classic movie and theatre adaptation will make for a great backdrop to the celebrations on the night.

We hope your company will consider entering this year’s Business Awards. They are a marvellous profile raiser and a wonderful opportunity for us all to recognise the hard work and talent we have in our area. Please take part, fill in your online entry form and let’s make it a year to remember.
