Welcome to the Hartlepool Business Forum Website. The Forum offers Hartlepool businesses the opportunity to network with each other throughout the year in a number of show case events which culminates in the Hartlepool Business Awards on Thursday 11th May 2017.

Once again I am delighted to announce that the Hartlepool Business Awards for 2017 are officially open from Friday 11st November. Last year was a huge rise in entrants for all categories and it was particular pleasing to see lots of new entrants too.  J.D.R Cables were the worthy winners of the Overall Business of the Year last year. The awards evening continues to go from strength to strength and has become one of the most attended events in the Hartlepool business calendar. Whether you are a large, medium a small, new or established, there is a category for your business and I urge you to enter, as they say “you have to be in it to win it!”







Jeff Stelling was our guest of honour last year and added a great local touch to the awards, he even won one himself! We will hopefully be announcing this year’s guest of honour very shortly, so watch this space.

The awards are funded solely through sponsorship and ticket sales, there is a section located on this web-site which indicates the sponsorship packages available as well as the information regarding how to book tickets for the evening.


If you want to declare your interest in Applying for the Awards or want any other information about the Awards please fill in our simple ‘Enquiry & General Interest Form’ below and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Have a browse through the web site and in particular have a look at last year’s roll of honour and gallery which will hopefully whet your appetite for this years awards and hopefully you will join me in attending another packed night with the best of Hartlepool businesses in May.
