Level up – Sheffield Business Awards return with a reboot

20th September 2021

Sheffield Chamber is partnering with unLTD magazine to take the Sheffield Business Awards ‘to the next level’ with a rebooted event to celebrate the amazing successes of the business community after a challenging year.

After 18 months of virtual working or social distancing in workplaces, this year’s Sheffield Business Awards, taking place on Thursday 9th December, will be a more informal affair. Guests will gather to enjoy a night of celebration, networking and culinary delights at the venue best known for hosting Peddler Market.

Not only is the venue changing, but Sheffield Chamber and unLTD have refreshed and rebooted the categories and simplified the entry process, to ensure that businesses, social enterprises, and charities all have an opportunity to shine.

Sheffield Chamber executive director Alexis Krachai said:

“Sheffield Chamber is once again showing we know how to collaborate. We are teaming up with our friends at unLTD in a partnership that will take the Sheffield Business Awards to the next level.

“It has been a hell of an 18 months. Even if you sailed smoothly through the pandemic and have a bumper order book, the last year has seen every business face real challenges. But the success of the vaccination programme, coupled with us learning to live with the virus, means hopefully the worst is behind us.

“Now is the time to take a breath and unashamedly celebrate the amazing successes that businesses in our region achieved during – and despite – the pandemic. We are a city of more than 500,000 people and 16,000 businesses. Our economy is worth over £12bn a year. We need to shout more about our business success.

“The Sheffield Business Awards will not just be a great night out and a key date in the diary, but also an opportunity for us all to showcase Sheffield as home to some of the best businesses in the UK.”

unLTD editor Richard Fidler said:

"I think we're all due a great night and a celebration of the brilliant businesses in Sheffield. There is such a diverse mix of people in our city who are creating and delivering some unbelievable work in the most challenging circumstances.

"We want the Sheffield Business Awards to represent excellence, the best of the best. unLTD champions Sheffield business and its people at every turn and we will always be in your corner, telling your good news and supporting you.

"The awards will be an extension of the community we have built since we launched four years ago, and we are thrilled to be partnering with our good friends at Sheffield Chamber to host what I know will be an amazing occasion."
