Bedfordshire’s SME businesses have been at the forefront of the UK’s powerful drive out of the recent recession and the awards are set to provide a snapshot of that positivity.
More than 60 businesses attended the launch of the awards, which have Everline as their headline sponsor, at Basepoint Business Centre in Luton.
The competition is free to enter and open to all businesses based in Bedfordshire that commenced trading before January 2013.
They do not have to be a Federation of Small Businesses member to enter but they must be sole traders or have fewer than 250 employees at the time of entering. There are a range of categories to consider.
Karen McGeeney, communications director for the FSB Bedfordshire Business Awards, said: “Bedfordshire has been a hotbed for the creation of new companies in the last few years.
“Entering awards is the best kept secret in marketing; they can provide a fantastic return on investment so we urge everyone to fill in the application forms now.”
