The East Midlands Chamber is seeking to recognise the achievement and resilience of businesses across the three cities and counties having announced the stating of its Business Awards for 2024, following a challenging trading environment over the last year.

Businesses from across Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire can apply for the 13 category awards, including Excellence in Innovation, Outstanding Growth and Business Improvement Through Technology.    

Finalists will be revealed in an announcement at the President’s Summer Celebration event on 21st August, followed by a virtual judging process.   TV presenter Emma Jesson will be hosting the awards which take place later in the year.  Entries for the awards need to be submitted by 19th July.  A Business of the Year is chosen from the winners in each county and selected firms will go through to the regional and national British Chambers of Commerce Awards.

East Midlands Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said: “The business community across the East Midlands has had to grapple with several years of high costs, a slowly recovering economy and a climate of political uncertainty, yet the region’s resilience, creativity and innovation continually shines through. The Chamber Business Awards recognise the remarkable achievements of the region’s business community, its strength in challenging times and the innovation that the East Midlands is so proud of.   I’d like to extend my thanks to Emma Jesson for hosting this year and to all the sponsors that help make the Business Awards such an outstanding event each year.”

Dates set for the three award ceremonies are:

  • 25th October - Derbyshire Business Awards
