2013 BAHBAS – The awards and the after party!

On June 6th The Eventa Group were sponsors to a very special local event – The Brighton and Hove Business Awards! Plus our very own “Party King” Rob Hill was appointed a judge! The event took place on the iconic Brighton Pier with Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley making an appearance!

The BAHBAs are supported by the MDHUB, Chamber of Commerce and B&H Tourism Alliance. Chairing the event once more will be Tony Mernagh who is the Executive Director of Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership and Chair of the Strategic Partnership.  When asked about the awards this year Tony commented that,

“It’s great to see the BAHBAs back in the city celebrating all that’s good about our dynamic economy. It’s even more important that we celebrate in these difficult times; Brighton & Hove has got lot to shout about and there’s no better platform for shouting than the BAHBAs…”

It’s worth noting that this is the eighth year the awards have been running, with many businesses entering to win an award. However, even if you weren’t shortlisted, or even if you didn’t win, I’m sure we all agree that all the winners were worthy!

The after party was a blast with it taking place on the pier! Delicious fish n’ chips were the delicacy of the evening and (of course) there was plenty of dancing, laughing and all round revelry the whole night. Many people clambered to have their photos taken with the brilliant iconic impersonators (Elvis and Marilyn.)  When we asked our very own Rob Hill (The Eventa Group) for a comment he said,

“It was a fantastic night and I was so impressed with everyone who entered and, of course, the winners themselves who all deserved their awards. The party was brilliant with Marilyn and Elvis being a personal highlight for me. I enjoyed every minute of it, except of course – the headache the next day!”
