We’re excited to announce that the 25th Dorset Business Awards is set to return on Thursday 28th November at the Bournemouth International Centre.

The awards are firmly established as the leading business celebration on the south coast and they are extremely important to the business community.

They showcase Dorset as the place of innovation, entrepreneurship and community and help us to drive investment in the area from those outside our county borders. It is a reminder of our successes and our talent and honours the incredible businesses and people who are a source of inspiration to us all. For winners and finalists it means a great deal, and has the potential to positively transform their business.

The awards are a powerful opportunity for you to build your brand and connect with a vast array of key business leaders and achievers during a five month campaign across the region. There is a range of sponsorship and advertising opportunities available and we would be delighted to discuss them with you. On behalf of the entire team, we hope you choose to be a part of the awards and get behind the Dorset business community for the betterment of all.
