Business Awards /

Recognising our local businesses

Business Awards

This is one of City Centre Initiative's signature projects and is jointly organised by City Centre Initiative and the Londonderry Chamber of Commerce.

The North West Business Awards enjoy a high profile and is an established fixture in the City's annual business calendar. Now in its eighth year the awards culminate in a black tie gala dinner and prestigious awards ceremony, celebrating the successes and collective achievements of the business community in the North West.

Through the different award categories, the intention is to ensure that a broad spectrum of businesses are eligible to enter the awards. Indeed, this broad spectrum of entrants is indicative of not only how the awards have impacted the business community but how much this community has excelled and diversified in recent times.

The high profile sponsors of the event are demonstrative of the impact the awards have and have helped in the consistent development and growth of the project. These awards provide an opportunity for all of those involved in the business community to reward and celebrate the outstanding achievements of local business men and women and their employees.
