We’ve seen growth in interest, attendance and applications for the awards every year since we started, with last year almost 500 people attending the Gala evening. It’s always great to see the mix of businesses at the awards, representing sectors from retail to manufacturing to services. And it allows Ballymena to showcase the best businesses and practices to outside bodies perhaps looking to locate new businesses. 

I’m glad to say that Chamber has an excellent working relationship with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and I look forward to this business focused approach continuing in the future”.

The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough, Councillor Billy Ashe, said: “We are delighted to be the principal sponsor at this year’s Ballymena Business Excellence Awards. 

“The Council recognises that growing the local economy is a major priority across not only Ballymena but also the wider Borough. 

“It is therefore very important to support our local businesses in as many ways as possible, with our sponsorship of the Business Excellence Awards in Ballymena being a very good, practical example of this approach.” 

Chris Wales, who has been involved in the organisation of the awards formany years added: “Planning is already well under way for this year’s awards. Once again Chamber will be employing Insight Mystery Shopping to carry out the judging and the Tullyglass House Hotel, an excellent facility we are fortunate to have in Ballymena, will again be hosting the gala evening. The date for this year’s award ceremony is Thursday 20th. October which may seem a long way off but it will soon come round so put this date in your diary now. I am confident that this will be another brilliant evening”.
