Voting is now open for the Watford BID Service Excellence Awards, which aim to recognise businesses in Watford Town Centre that offer excellent service to their customers and clients.
Members of the public have up until Friday 13th January to vote for their favourite businesses, via the online vote hosted by the local newspaper or by visiting each finalist and filling in voting postcards. The full list of finalists is available by visiting www.watfordbid.co.uk/excellence-awards.
Winners will be determined by the public vote and announced at the black-tie awards ceremony taking place at Watford Colosseum on Tuesday 28th February 2017. An additional assessment by Watford Borough Council’s licensing department will be carried out on those businesses entering the Best Bar, Pub, Club and Live Music categories.
An award will also be presented to an individual, employed within a town centre business, who continually demonstrates excellent customer service has also been included.
There are a number of businesses sponsoring individual awards. Further sponsorship opportunities are still available for interested businesses.
Kwame Tefe, Vice-Chair of Watford BID and manager of The Moon Under Water said: “Businesses that make up the town centre’s night time economy – the bars, pubs and clubs – have valued the friendly competition of the Best Bar None Awards scheme which has run for the past three years, so it’s great to now extend that opportunity to all business sectors operating in the town centre.
“The aim of the BID is to encourage a positive image of Watford and the town centre as a destination. By recognising and promoting the importance of good customer service we aim to grow a brand loyalty to Watford town centre.”
