The awards will recognise excellence in business and will be open to organisations of all sizes and from all sectors based in Northamptonshire.
Wilson Browne partner Kevin Rogers said: “These awards are a way for businesses of all types and sizes to get together, recognise just how good they are and celebrate success.
"We are proud of Northamptonshire businesses – acting for many of them – and would encourage everyone to get involved and showcase the talent that we know exists.”
The competition will be open for entries from March, with the winners being announced at a gala dinner in September.
Chamber chief executive Paul Griffiths pictured said one of the organisation’s key functions is to raise the profile of business in Northamptonshire and to celebrate its success.
He added: “The response we have had from the business community to these new awards has been incredible.
“There is so much enthusiasm in the air from businesses that want to enter the awards and even at this early stage we only have limited sponsorship opportunities left because so many firms want to get involved with this event.
A total ten awards will be presented at the awards ceremony and dinner on September 13 at the Park Inn Northampton.
The award categories are:
- Best Use of Technology
- High Growth Business of the Year
- Commitment to people development
- Education & Business Partnership
- Excellence in Customer Service
- Marketing Campaign
- Exporter of the Year
- Apprentice of the Year
- Small Business of the Year
Mr Rogers said: “We want to encourage other businesses to also embrace change, be innovative, develop local talent and ensure that Northamptonshire remains firmly at the heart of the country… in every sense.”
