The North East Business Awards toast success, celebrate achievement and highlight successful and innovative businesses doing fantastic things right here in the North East.  They shine a light on companies large and small, new and established, and remind us that the North East is a great place to live, work and do business.

They are the biggest and best of their kind with almost 2,000 people attending across the four awards dinners, with the region coming together for the Grand Final.

Over the past twenty years it has been fantastic to see so many businesses in the region rising to the challenges presented, showing not only how talented they are but also their endless determination, entrepreneurial spirit, enterprise, innovation and creativity to make it happen. Our Awards recognise that drive and ambition and celebrate all the success stories.

What’s more, the Awards are COMPLETELY FREE TO ENTER!

The entry form is the first step on the road to possible success – and potential glory at our glittering awards nights – so if you would like to showcase your success, not just to the business community but to the tens of thousands of readers of The Journal and The Gazette and to our millions of online readers through our websites ChronicleLive, TeessideLive and BusinessLive, you need to ENTER NOW.
