The 2020 Fife Business Awards are now open for nominations, with aspiring businesses having until Sunday 29th September 2019 to submit their entries.
But why should you consider entering?
The Fife Business Awards celebrate the fantastic spectrum of business successes across Fife. When going through the application process, many companies not only benefit from reflecting upon their business and strategically thinking about where they want to go but they benefit from greater exposure, the opportunity to network, and the opportunity to highlight key areas of the business they are particularly proud of.
In addition, new innovations have been introduced making it even easier to enter including a simple online application process. Last year's “In the Know” workshops will also run once more due to their success last year. These useful events will offer practical tips and guidance from past judges and winners to help you apply with greater confidence.
Previous winners have experienced strong benefits from being recognised as one of Fife’s premier businesses.
