biz4Biz Awards

Impartial. Expertly judged. Open to all those involved in a business based in Hertfordshire.

The biz4Biz Awards are the first of their kind and are impartial, independent awards that can be won by anyone involved in a business in Hertfordshire. The aim of the biz4Biz Awards is to seek out examples of being the best at what we do.

Online nomination and voting will take place from the beginning of September to the end of December 2016. Nominees from the Top 20 will then be invited to attend a judging day at a Hertfordshire hotel during January 2017.

The glittering biz4Biz Awards ceremony will take place on Friday 3rd March 2017 at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Welwyn, Hertfordshire and will be hosted by the Rt Hon Michael Portillo.

All nominees will have the opportunity to publicise on the biz4Biz Awards website with Award Winners having full, on-going publicity, following the ceremony.
