About the Awards

The Welsh Business Awards aim to recognise the very best from businesses across Wales. Our businesses, whether small, medium or large, all play a fundamental role in driving the Welsh economy forward. These awards will celebrate success, excellence in best practice and the contribution Welsh businesses make to the wider community.
The Welsh Business Awards are an excellent platform for any business wishing to highlight their achievements, benchmark against the competition, reward their teams and gain the recognition they deserve.

Feedback from past events

We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, well done to the team. it was very well organised and it ran very smoothly. The entertainment at the beginning was excellent and the dinner was superb.

Susan SelkirkConstructing Excellence in Wales

We were disappointed that we didn’t win; in saying that we all had a great evening and thank you for that. I know what it takes to organise events – you did a really good job.
As a company we’re very proud we were selected as one of the finalist and for me that makes us a winner. I hope we have the opportunity to meet again.’’

We’re so pleased we won, did not expect it all, we were happy to just be there as finalists. It was a great night and congratulations to you all for a wonderful evening. Look forward to seeing the pictures.
