As well as December being the month for Christmas cheer and navigating your way through the office Christmas party, it is also the month for end of year awards, where the best businesses from across the country are awarded for their hard work and dedication to not only their own company and region, but the defining factor of any business – the customer.
In between making sure your Christmas parties are running smoothly, you might have guessed from the photo above that we have something very important to shout about. You’re right – because to be specific, The Eventa Group has 2 very important things to shout about, so read on to find out all about them…
The Sussex Business Awards 2012
In that photo above is our Managing Director Rob Hill with Lord Brett Mclean holding his award for ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ – one of the main awards of the night and one hell of an achievement for a man who has continued to innovate and build year after year, or as The Argus put it afterwards – ‘a proven classic business entrepreneur whose determination and passion has led him to great success’.
Held at the South Lodge Hotel last Thursday 6th December, the Sussex Business Awards saw 500 of the county’s leading business people in attendance as well as VIPs that included Hugh Burnett OBE, Jason Kitcat – Leader of Brighton & Hove City Council and host – England Rugby Star Martin Bayfield. We were also there as a finalist for the award for Leisure & Tourism, which in the end went to the Brighton Seafront based Grand Hotel – but just being a finalist in a category with a hotel that has been a permanent fixture on Brighton’s seafront for so many years is an achievement in itself. We’re just looking forward to taking home more next year!

The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100
Last week’s award and nomination was the icing on the cake to what was already an amazing week, because on Sunday 2nd December The Eventa Group were named by The Sunday Times as one of the companies that had made it onto the Virgin Top 100 Fast Track League table – making us the 80th fastest growing business in the whole of the UK in 2012 and with 4.8 million registered companies vying for these levels of growth, this is an achievement that is hard to even measure in its scale!
