Nominations and bookings are now open for the annual Knowsley Business and Regeneration Awards.

The awards recognise the achievements of Knowsley based companies and individuals, as well as organisations outside of the borough that have made a significant contribution towards the borough’s economy. 

This event has become increasingly popular and now attracts over 600 guests and over 100 nominations from businesses and organisations across the Liverpool City Region.

Cllr Dave Lonergan, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Economy and Skills, said: “Each year we acknowledge the creativity and commitment of the individuals and organisations that contribute to Knowsley’s economic success.”

“The awards celebrate all aspects of business and regeneration success. From sole traders to bigger businesses and the impact of a housing development or regeneration initiative.”

“I would encourage individuals and organisations to make a nomination as the awards are a fantastic opportunity to showcase the achievements of our business community.”

There will be 12 awards presented this year, including the prestigious Judges Choice Award which last year went to joint winners Clarke Energy for their Outstanding Contribution for Business and the Tour of Britain Partners SweetSpot, Knowsley Hall and Knowsley Cycling for their Outstanding Contribution to the Borough’s Economy.
