East Anglian Daily Times Business Awards 2016

The One

The entry period for the 2016 East Anglian Daily Times Business Awards has now closed.

The judging process has now commenced, with the line-up of finalists due to be announced towards the end of June and the winners being announced at a black-tie gala presentation evening taking place at Trinity Park, Ipswich, on Thursday, July 7.

The awards, which are being staged for the 19th time this year, aim to recognise the best in entrepreneurial endeavour and business practice across the EADT’s circulation area.

For the fifth year running the joint main sponsors of the awards are EDF Energy and Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, which are working in partnership to ensure that local firms are able to derive maximum benefit from the planned Sizewell C nuclear power station development.

Their support includes the overall Business of the Year title which, as in previous years, will be awarded to the organisation deemed to be “the best of the best” out of all the category winners.

Last year’s winners and finalists reflected the diversity of the region’s economy, covering a broad range of businesses from the services and manufacturing sectors and with food and agriculture well to the fore, including the overall Business of the Year, Stowmarket-based malt and malted ingredients firm Muntons.

Former BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Terry Baxter, who is now chief executive of Inspire Suffolk and chairman of Ipswich Central, will again be hosting the awards ceremony this year.

The EADT would like to extend its thanks to EDF Energy and Suffolk Chamber for their continued support, and also to all our other category sponsors, many of which have also been supporting the awards for many years. Details of all our sponsors can be found by clicking here or on the “Sponsors” button above.

We would also like to thank all those organisations which have entered the awards this, and to wish you good luck as the judging process unfolds in the coming weeks.
