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: email@example.com.
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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 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."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
