Entries Now Closed for KBA 2016

For another year entries have now closed for Keighley Business Awards 2016. We wish everyone who entered the best of luck and a big thanks for your entry. Judges formed from this years sponsors of the awards will review entries and make a shortlist of businesses who will be invited to the awards evening to find out if they have won. The shortlist will be announced on the 1st June 2016 on the Keighley Business Awards website. So please make sure you take a look to see if you have been nominated.

It’s usual once the shortlist has been announced that many businesses want to purchase additional tickets so they can bring colleagues, friends and family to the occasion. Please get in touch with us asap once you know numbers so we can allocate tickets to you. They do sell out fast and we are limited by space as to how many we can sell.

We’d also like to say another big thanks to our sponsors, without which there wouldn’t be a Keighley Business Awards.

Keighleybid will be the headline sponsor for the Keighley Business Awards for 2016

The event will be held on 17th June, once more in Keighley’s Victoria Hall, compered by BBC TV’s Harry Gration.

The annual Keighley Business Awards have grown successfully since they were launched in 2013 and are supported through business sponsorship and ticket sales.

The organisation of the event is through local businesses and the quality of the event is exemplary.

The awards were a sell out event in the last 2 years and are a highlight of the business calendar. They provide an opportunity for local businesses to promote their achievements to other businesses, Keighley and the wider world.

The opportunity to enter is live now – closing date on May 6th.

This annual showcase for business achievement captures some of the spirit of enterprise that the BID company wants to support and promote and looks forward to seeing a repeat of the success of town centre businesses like Slow Food Kitchen, Tax Assist Accountants, Hairavanti, and Buff Beauty Bar. Many other Keighley businesses outside the town centre area were involved and have used the awards to market their businesses. Business of the Year was Feature Radiators who have now confirmed they too will be a sponsor.

There are still some opportunities to get involved as a sponsor. Any business wishing to get in touch should get in touch via the website.

Graham Benn Chair of KeighleyBID said:“Marketing of the town and its businesses is essential and we are glad to be able to assist the Awards which continue to provide a quality showcase for Keighley.”

Steven Burles Joint Chair of KBA 2016 said: “The Keighley Business Awards are delighted to have the sponsorship of the new Keighleybid company and are determined to see the awards surpass the success of previous years for out entrants and sponsors.”
