North East Lincolnshire Business Awards


We are delighted to introduce you to the 2017 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 The Bath Halls in Scunthorpe on Friday the 19th of May.

Our Business Awards theme for the Dinner this year is “The Phantom of the Opera”. We are sure this well known and classic theatre adaptation of the hit movie will make for a great backdrop to the celebrations on the night.

We do 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.
