The Swale Business Awards is widely regarded as the borough’s most prestigious business event.
Each year the diversity and excellence of local businesses from Sittingbourne, Sheppey and Faversham have made the awards both incredibly successful as well as an indication of which businesses are thriving in our region.
Entering the awards is a chance for local business to have themselves profiled in the Sittingbourne News Extra, Sittingbourne Messenger, Sheerness Times Guardian and Faversham News, plus online news coverage via www.kentonline.co.uk, KMFM radio and on this website. Becoming one of the finalists is quite an achievement and is great for company morale and motivation too.
