Organisers of the South Holland Business Awards say there are many reasons why companies large and small should take part.

The annual South Holland Business awards will be held on November 19 at Springfield’s Event Centre and will give firms an opportunity to be recognised for their contribution to South Holland.

Phil Scarlett, president of South Holland Chamber of Commerce, said: “Entering the awards comes with a range of potential advantages – whether or not you eventually win.

The application process for the awards can provide a valuable opportunity to properly appraise your business.

The judging process, meanwhile, can be thought of as a benchmarking process. Winning, of course, brings its own advantages.

The awards generate significant amounts of publicity across Lincolnshire, and this can have a direct impact on your firm.

Just as importantly, winning one of our awards differentiates you from your competitors, and can provide a real competitive advantage when seeking or retaining customers.

If you are seeking investment, demonstrating that you have received recognition as the best or most promising firm in your field can really help your case.

Similarly, you may find it easier to attract top quality talent as a result of your awards success.

With so many opportunities to reap the rewards of being recognised as one of the top businesses in South Holland, why not enter the awards today?

To apply, email Alison.Mackfall@lincs-chamber.co.uk for your application form. All applications must be submitted before the deadline of October 20.

Businesses can only enter the awards if they are based in the South Holland Area. One business can enter a maximum of three categories.

Tickets to attend are being sold for £25+VAT for Chamber members and £35+VAT for non-members.

Tables of 10 are available at a discounted rate of £200+VAT for members and £300+VAT for non-members.
