The response to Staffordshire Chambers’ 2019 Business Awards has been overwhelming with hundreds of entries across the categories. The quality of entrees was splendid, resulting in a difficult task for the judging panel.

Staffordshire Chambers Chief Executive, Sara Williams, said: “It is great to see how the entries have developed and by far exceeded previous year’s in terms of quality. We see this as a testimony to the healthy state and award-winning potential of businesses within Staffordshire. I would like to thank the judges for their dedication to the task and the businesses who took the time to enter. Many congratulations to all of our finalists and commended businesses.”

The Steering Committee has now met to review all the entries with the objective of identifying a small number of shortlisted finalists for each category. This proved incredibly difficult, but after a full day of deliberation, the finalists were identified and can now be announced (see below). In addition, a large number of entries were commended by the committee, and all of these will receive framed certificates.

All finalists will be visited by the judging panels, with the winners announced at a gala awards evening at the Staffordshire County Showground on Thursday 4 July 2019. Over four hundred guests from across the county are anticipated, where they will enjoy a delicious meal and celebrate the achievements of the Staffordshire finalists.
