Leicester Mercury Business Awards
Representatives of leading, innovative businesses from across Leicestershire came together to celebrate all that is great about the region’s business community.
The annual Leicester Mercury Business Awards were held in 2017 at Leicester city’s versatile Leicester Arena and were attended by people from across a diverse range of regional businesses.
The glittering awards ceremony welcomed guests with a Champagne reception followed by a decadent three-course meal before the evening’s real business – rewarding hard working local businesses, got underway.
Finalists were narrowed down from the many nominated businesses, and awards were available across 14 categories, including Business Entrepreneur of the Year and the coveted Company of the Year award which was won by Qualvis Print & Packaging Ltd.
Keen to help raise the profile of local businesses and recognise the hard work and dedication it takes to succeed in these challenging economic times, the awards were presented to winners by category sponsors; local and national businesses who sponsored an award close to the heart of their business.
Organised by leading Leicestershire brand agency, Champions (UK) plc, the event also acted as a fundraiser for Loughborough-based children’s hospice, Rainbows. Through various evening fundraising activities, including a silent auction, much needed funds were raised for this worthy cause.
