The Rural Business Awards are going regional for 2018

Having engaged with businesses now for three years, we have a good understanding of the remit and markets in which many of you operate. We have taken the decision that 2018 will see us take our Awards Regional. We will be running events in the North, East, Midlands, South East, South West and Wales. Our regional winners will be announced at six ceremonies around the country throughout October 2018.

Each of the category winners will then be entered into our National Final with the opportunity to be crowned National Category Winner – the best of the best in each category. The National Final will happen at a ceremony in late February 2019.

Rural Employee of the Year Category – Free Entry

Here at the Rural Business Awards, we believe that employees are vitally important to every business’ success, in fact, businesses wouldn’t exist without them! It is thanks to their endless enthusiasm, untiring determination and ingenious ideas that the rural sector is the uniquely inspiring place that it is today.
