The Swale Business Awards have continued their record-breaking trend of the last several years by closing the 2019 awards with a record number of applicants.
In total, 52 businesses from across the borough decided to ‘throw their hat into the ring’ for the 2019 awards.
After much deliberation, the judging panel have whittled the list down to 23 finalists.
Brian Carey, Chair of the Awards, discussed the quality of applicants received:
“I was completely blown away by the calibre of the businesses that have entered this year. Certainly it was the toughest shortlisting process that I have ever been involved in. There were a number of applicants that I think in previous years would have been finalists, but because this year the quality was so high they just missed out on making the final shortlist.
“I am absolutely delighted that so many businesses throughout Faversham, Sheppey and Sittingbourne see the value of the Swale Business Awards and are so keen to show everyone else the fabulous work that they have been doing. I think the Swale Business Awards provide a phenomenal platform for raising the profile of local businesses.”
The finalists for the 2019 awards are as follows:
The judging panel will visit the finalists in September and all finalists will be invited to the Swale Business Awards 2019 Gala Awards Ceremony, taking place at Kent Event Centre on 18th October. This year, tickets to the ceremony will be made available to everyone. If you are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
