Nominations now open for SoGlos' Gloucestershire Business Awards 2023

03 March 2023

We’re excited to be co-headline sponsors of the county’s standout business awards for the second year running.

Following the buzz of last year’s awards, we return once again alongside our friends at Hazlewoods to co-sponsor the 2023 instalment of the SoGlos Gloucestershire Business Awards that recognises and champions innovative and successful businesses across the county.

Nominations for 22 diverse award categories – including ‘new business of the year’, ‘green business of the year’ and ‘employee of the year’ – are now open and can be submitted until Friday 19 May 2023.

The winners will be announced at the awards night at Gloucester South Community Fire Station in Tuffley, Gloucester on Thursday 19 October 2023.

Chris Wills, a partner in our corporate & commercial team and a judge at last year’s business awards, said: “Learning about the variety of successful businesses in our county is a fantastic experience – hearing their stories and meeting the people behind what makes this area so vibrant is something I really enjoy.

“Willans advises clients across the UK, but our roots are firmly in Gloucestershire, and we’ve been supporting businesses here for over 75 years. Because of this, celebrating and championing Gloucestershire businesses and businesspeople feels like a natural fit.

“Submit your entry before the deadline to be in with a chance of getting the recognition you deserve. I can’t wait to hear more about the thriving businesses in our county!”

2023 is set to be another highlight in our local businesses’ calendars and we really look forward to being involved throughout the awards journey.
