Marketing Cheshire Annual Awards 2013
1st October 2013
... Comments

This year's extravaganza is Hollywood themed and will take place on the evening of Thursday 28th November 2013. The awards have been running for nine years and the awards ceremony will be a fantastic celebration recognising and showcasing the fantastic range of businesses that we have in Cheshire and an exclusive opportunity to network with movers and shakers from all over Cheshire.

There are 17 categories in this year's awards, the shortlist is below and winners will be announced on the night. Winners in many of the categories will go on to represent Cheshire at the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2014 and hopefully repeat the success Cheshire had in 2013 (it's the only route to the national awards for many categories!). 

This is a superb night out for you and your team and a great way to reward them for all their hard work and effort throughout the year.
