Awards are one of the most powerful and cost-effective marketing
tools and winning a prestigious Best Business Award will help
your organisation to stand out from the crowd, send a positive
message to your existing customers and attract new business.
The Best Business Awards are one of the UKs highest profile awards
and winning this accolade will say a lot about the quality of
your organisation and the strength of your management team. Due
to its high profile, the Awards attract a wide range of entries
from across all sectors from large international PLCs and public
sector organisations to dynamic and innovative SMEs. But the winners
all have one thing in common they are truly excellent at
what they do and have proved this by winning a Best Business Award.
We want to help you raise the profile of your organisation and
enhance its reputation by promoting the great work you are doing
while at the same time providing you with a platform to celebrate
Listen to the Awards Intelligence CEO Mark Llewellyn-Slade explaining the benefits of winning business awards to BBC TV World News
"Winning a Best Business Award has provided us with a platform
to raise our profile via the media. Since winning we have secured
press coverage in key national and regional publications regarding
the great work we are doing and we have attracted students to
the college that may not have otherwise heard about us. I would
recommend the Best Business Awards to any dynamic organisation
that wants to prove to stakeholders that it is delivering." Dave Cooper, director of marketing, Solihull
If youre a young business without much
marketing spend, then entering awards can be a cost-effective
way of generating positive marketing and PR, because youre
thrown into the spotlight. It also offers a seal of approval.
Potential customers can look at that and think Im
happy to do business with this company because they have that
recognition. Adam Goodyer, co-founder of Concert Live
Experience has shown that an award gives massive
credence to our business, particularly when talking to new customers
and vendors that have not dealt directly with us in the past.
With existing partners, it reinforces the fact they have made
the right choice to work with us. If I equated the benefits of
winning an award to other forms of channel marketing, we would
probably have to spend tens of thousands of pounds to get similar
levels of impact. David Ellis, director, Computerlinks
The Best Business Awards are open to private and public sector organisations of all sizes. There are four rounds each
year with quarterly deadlines being the last working day of January,
April, July and October and winners for each round hold their
title for twelve months. Therefore you can enter when the time
is right for you, as many times as you wish during the course
of the year.
A popular feature of the BBAs is
that unlike most awards we don't hold an awards dinner at which
winners are announced. So you won't feel obliged to take a table
for ten if shortlisted along with all the associated costs such
as hotel accommodation and travel. Instead, winners are advised
by email about six weeks after each quarterly deadline. We then
offer winners benefit packages to help you make the most of your
awards success and to make your budget work as hard as possible.
