It’s that time of year when we put a spotlight on the best businesses in the district.
Wakefield Business Awards are back. Now in its sixth year, the awards will celebrate the district’s entrepreneurial spirit as well as incorporating new retail categories combining the success of an even wider range of businesses.
This year’s ceremony will take place at Unity Works on Thursday June 16. Organised by the Express, the awards help to raise the profile of businesses in the city, giving them a platform to showcase their work and offer an insight as to why Wakefield’s business community is booming.
If you’ve got a trailblazing business, or know of one, you can nominate a person or company, or your own enterprise, by submitting nominations via www.wakefieldbusinessawards.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline for nominations is May 6.
