Last year was a great year for us here at Eventa ( who part of The Eventa Group by the way.) Our CEO Rob Hill won The Sussex Business Awards 2012 entrepreneur of the year award and The Eventa Group was listed as one of the fastest growing companies in the UK in The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100. Both great achievements, I’m sure you’ll agree!
So when we were offered the chance to become official sponsors of the 2013 Brighton and Hove Business Awards (in association with the Argus) we were both honoured and delighted. After all, this is the eighth year that these awards have been running and our very own Rob Hill is judging this year! Once again the BAHBAs are supported by the MDHUB, Chamber of Commerce and B&H Tourism Alliance. Meaning that, once more, Tony Mernagh will chair the proceedings once more. When asked about the event Mernagh 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…”
Entry opened on the 22 March and closes 31 April. So if you haven’t entered yet then you better get on it! The awards themselves will be presented at the end of the Brighton Pier on Thursday 6 June. Apparently there’s going to be free rides, party food, candy floss, unlimited wine and of course a chance for all attendees to mingle and network with some of Brighton & Hove’s best and brightest business people.
(There’s also going to be karaoke sing-song session too but we’re not in a huge hurry to inform any of the Eventa team: there are quite a few disastrous singing attempts last year and no one wants to experience that again!)
