Welcome

The Express & Star Business Awards shine the spotlight on the enterprises that represent the whole range of commercial activity across our region.

This year we have received high levels of applications from a wide range of businesses, including many which haven’t entered previously. More companies than ever before want to recognise just how great they are and take part in these awards, competing for the attention they so richly deserve. This is testament to business engagement across the region. 


We can only hold these awards because of the support of our sponsors. Seven of the nine companies have returned as sponsors – some have been with us for many years.

Our warmest thanks go to Altodigital, Carvers Building Supplies, City of Wolverhampton Council, Crowe, Higgs & Sons, HomeServe and Collins Aerospace.

And we are delighted to welcome new sponsors, East End Foods plus Marston’s, who took the title Business of the Year in the 2017 campaign.

Thanks also go to the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre who are once again sponsoring the drinks reception at the awards evening, Yarrington, who produce the event and Wolverhampton Racecourse, our chosen venue.

All the finalists, along with our sponsors and other representatives from the region’s businesses and civic communities will attend the glittering awards night at Wolverhampton Racecourse on Thursday, June 6.

Make sure you are part of the region’s most prestigious event by purchasing tickets for the evening now! Please call 01902 319360 to book.
