Express & Star Business Awards 2017: We're searching for region's brightest and best

Enter the Express & Star Business Awards 2017

Today we launch the search for the very best companies, entrepreneurs, products and services that our region has to offer, to enter the Express & Star Business Awards for 2017.

These awards will shine a spotlight on the enterprises that represent the whole range of commercial activity across our region, from single traders working from a town centre shop to the major manufacturers and services companies employing hundreds on major business parks – and everything in between.

Whether their turnover is counted in the thousands or the billions, whatever sector they operate in, the firms highlighted in the Express & Star Business Awards are always the brightest and the best.
Every year we have been able to celebrate the fabulous companies that make this area their home, and for our latest event we are aiming to attract our biggest entry.

We want more firms than ever to recognise just how great they are and take part in these awards, competing for the attention and rewards they so richly deserve.

We can only hold these awards because of the support of our sponsors, and this year we are delighted the Black Country Chamber of Commerce – The Platinum Group join our other established supporters. You can read commercial profiles on each of these sponsor companies over the next few pages.

The competition is free to enter. Turn to the centres of this special awards supplement to see the categories on offer, along with full details of how to take part. Some of the categories are open to just about every business imaginable, while others have certain restrictions.

But all are well worth a look. You have until March 2 next year to take part, but you must register with us in advance through the awards website:
All the finalists, along with our sponsors and other representatives from the region's business and civic communities will attend a glittering awards evening at Wolverhampton Racecourse on Thursday, June 8.

Make sure you are part of the region's most prestigious event by entering the Express & Star Business Awards 2017.
