The BHBiz Awards 2017
SAVE THIS DATE – FRIDAY MAY 5TH 2017, FROM 7.30 at THE AMEX STADIUM, BRIGHTON
The Directors and Steering Group of the BHBPA have decided to make a change for 2017, and instead of having another BHMB exhibition we shall put on an awards ceremony in May. The assumption is that we shall return to the exhibition the following year; it might become a bi-annual event, alternating with this new one in May.
However, we want ours to be a unique awards ceremony; we want this to be for you, the members, and your employees. We are looking to celebrate those companies and those employees who make up the BHBPA. Look closely at the categories and you will find that they are not the usual ones on such occasions. This will be an event just for BHBPA members and their employees. We ask that you give it some thought and then decide whether your company or someone in your company is worthy of nomination – in which case you must simply make your nominations in 100 words or fewer (entry forms supplied).
We will organise the judging process, set up the celebration evening and make it a special occasion, but we want you to be involved in it, to come along with colleagues on the presentation evening and celebrate the best of the BHBPA businesses, including those irreplaceable workers who always stay in the background and just get on with the job. As usual, we need, and are asking for, your support to make this inaugural BHBiz Awards event a memorable and very successful one.
Ways in which you can support this process –
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
