Knowsley Business Awards 2022 – nominations are open

by Gemma Melling

Nominations are officially open for this year’s Knowsley Business Awards, which are returning to the borough after a two year absence due to the pandemic.

The awards, which are now in their 18th year, celebrate the energy, determination and commitment of individuals and organisations that continue to drive forward Knowsley’s economic success.

The ceremony is an established date in business and social calendars, attracting guests from across the North West and beyond. The 2019 event was the biggest to date with 850 guests.

This year will be extra special as the awards return, and it is also Knowsley’s year as Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture.

A total of 12 awards will be presented which will recognise achievements in a range of categories including Best Newcomer Award, Commercial Development of the Year, Housing Development of the Year and more.

Cllr Graham Morgan, Leader of Knowsley Council, said: “I am delighted that the Business Awards are returning this year. The event is a real highlight in our annual calendar in Knowsley. Despite the challenges we have faced over the last two years, the awards will provide the opportunity to recognise the strong and remarkable business community we have here in Knowsley and to acknowledge those organisations and individuals who continue to help Knowsley’s economy grow.

“There’s a wide range of categories for this year’s awards, ranging from a Community Award, Small Business of the Year, Contractor of the Year and Apprentice or Employee of the Year, so there really is an opportunity for everyone to enter. I would encourage people to take a look at the categories on the website to see which one is most suitable and submit a nomination.”

The Knowsley Business Awards provide a fantastic opportunity for organisations to showcase their successes and accomplishments and to raise the profile of their company.

The full criteria for each category and nomination forms are available on the website www.knowsleybusinessawards.com.
