Sponsors announced for inaugural Burgess Hill Business Awards
Burgess Hill Business Parks Association has announced a slate of sponsors ahead of its inaugural BHBiz Awards.
The networking association’s first ever business awards ceremony will showcase the diverse services offered by its members, with flowers provided by Rosanne Florists, a media logo wall created by Fresh Display, logos by Preview and videography by Paul Noble Photographic.
Other member companies will also be supporting individual awards categories. Ridgeview Wine Estate has been announced as sponsors of the ‘Bright Star’ award, while Mike Oliver Associates has lent its support to the ‘Community Champion’ category.
Handelsbanken, Heights Health Club, Bio Productions, MCL Telecom, First Recruitment, Bennett Christmas, Wellesley and Time 24 round off the list of category sponsors.
Paul Shearing, Chairman of BHBPA, said: “The BHBiz Awards were designed with our members firmly in mind. It’s an opportunity for them to network, gain recognition for their teams, and a chance to have some fun.
We’re really pleased that they’ve embraced the idea. When we announced the awards, we were delighted how quickly the sponsorships were taken – within a few days!”
In addition to award category sponsors, several other member companies have been announced as part of the event’s organising committee: Autowise, Lea Graham Associates, Preview and Ridgeview Wine Estate.
Travail Employment Group, meanwhile, will provide the evening’s guest speaker Tony Cottey, a former Welsh cricketer who played for Glamorgan, Sussex and Eastern Transvaal in a career lasting almost twenty years.
“The BHBiz Awards are shaping up to be something really special, and a little bit different,” said Peter Liddell, Co-ordinator of BHBPA. “The Brighton Amex Stadium is the ideal venue for a showstopping event and now that nominations are closed, we’re excited to see the judges’ decisions – although these will be a closely guarded secret until the evening.”
Burgess Hill Business Park Association’s BHBiz Awards take place at 18:15 on Friday 5 May in the MayoWynneBaxter suite at the Amex Stadium. Tickets are available from: firstname.lastname@example.org.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"“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! ” "
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"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."
