‘Back to Business Awards’

The Ballymena ‘Back to Business Awards’

Ballymena Chamber of Commerce and Industry are delighted to announce that they intend to organise and host the 2021 Ballymena ‘Back to Business Awards’. Chamber President, Councillor Eugene Reid said ‘Having had to cancel the 2020 Awards due to the pandemic we are excited about being able to organise this year’s awards’. As a Chamber we understand the terrible impact this crisis has had on families, the community and our businesses, whilst this year’s awards will celebrate all that is good about business in the Ballymena Area we also hope that it will give businesses and customers a sense of normality and positivity for the future as we hopefully exit from the worst of this crisis.’

Tom Wiggins, the Chamber’s Business Development Manager said ‘In organising the awards we realise that many businesses have had the most difficult year that you could imagine, for that reason the awards and the awards ceremony will take a slightly different shape than normal. Rather than a large Gala evening with tickets priced at £60 we will host a celebratory Awards Lunch in the Tullyglass House Hotel with tickets costing only £25. Likewise, entry to the awards will be simplified with businesses being able to apply and track their entry online either through social media platforms or our dedicated online portal’. 

Eugene Reid went on to say, ‘Whilst showcasing our local businesses and the local economy, the Awards Lunch will also allow us to acknowledge our incredible healthcare workers who have worked tirelessly to save lives and provide outstanding care during the pandemic. Chamber will host a free table for representatives of our healthcare workers, including the tremendous staff at the Ni Hospice and The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice’.

The Awards will be formally launched in July with the Awards Lunch in October. Should you wish to come on board and sponsor an award please contact Tom Wiggins – tom@ballymenachamber.co.uk or by phone 07801738359.
