The gala evening for the BHBiz Awards is drawing ever nearer and ticket sales have risen to over 300 as of yesterday. Even Esther Dawson, the committee member in charge of sales, who was always optimistic about numbers attending, is surprised and delighted at the number of companies who have taken an interest and involved themselves in the event.
Now the judges’ work has finished and their decisions have been made. The shortlists were published yesterday and can be seen here in an article below or on the website. The judges, Gordon Reay, Economic Development Advisor at MSDC, Jacqui Landriani, the current Town Mayor of Burgess Hill and Grant Ashley, until recently MD of ILG, have done a fantastic job for the BHBPA. They told us how impressed they were with the number and quality of submissions for the awards.
For those many who submitted a nomination but did not get to be shortlisted, I can only offer our thanks that you took the time and effort to join in with this new venture and support the BHBPA. No doubt there will be another chance to show your appreciation of a colleague or company in the future.
We hope to see you there on FRIDAY 5th MAY 2017, from 6.15 at The Amex Stadium, Brighton.
It promises to be an excellent evening of good company, good food, some Ridgeview wine and lovely surroundings, with the chance to celebrate some of those terrific people who work so well among us every day. It will, above all, be fun, and show exactly what the BHBPA is about. The two bars will be open all evening from 6.15 until late. Come and join us in celebrating the best of business in Mid Sussex. Tickets still available from email@example.com
"“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! ” "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"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."
