The search for the Royal Borough’s top businesses of 2019 is under way after an inspiring breakfast event at Kingston University.
Guests at the launch of the 7th annual Kingston Business Excellence Awards were urged to take advantage of the benefits of entering by the borough’s business and political leaders.
Organised in partnership with Kingston First, the Royal Borough of Kingston and Kingston Chamber of Commerce, the free and easy-to-enter awards offer 12 categories – refreshed for 2019 and listed below. Independent judges will decide on the winners through a stringent two-stage process. Although there is a chance for the public to vote in the Love Your Local Retailer category.
The closing date for entries to the 2019 awards is Friday, 28th June. The winners, including Kingston Business of the Year, will be exclusively announced at the glittering black-tie Gala Awards Dinner on Thursday 10th October, 2019. Television presenters Michael Underwood and his wife Angelica Bell – who live in the borough – will be special guests at the dinner, with Michael hosting the Gala evening.
