Welcome to the Hartlepool Business Awards Website. The Awards evening offers Hartlepool businesses the opportunity to network with each other whilst celebrating all that is good about businesses in the town. Once again we are looking forward to hosting this gala event at the Borough Hall on Thursday 16th May 2019.

I am delighted to announce that the Hartlepool Business Awards for 2019 are officially open from Monday 21st January 2019. Last year saw a huge rise in entrants for all categories and it was particularly pleasing to see lots of businesses entering the Awards for the first time. Long-standing Hartlepool Company Seymour Civil Engineering were the worthy winners of the Overall Business of the Year last year as well as winning the Investment in Training category too. 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, small, new or established business, there is a category for you and I urge you to enter, as the saying goes “you have to be in it to win it!”

I am very pleased to announce that last year’s Business of the Year, Seymour Civil Engineering, has kindly agreed to be the main sponsor of the Awards this year and as always we are extremely grateful to all of our sponsors as without their kind support the gala evening would not be possible. The awards are funded solely through sponsorship and ticket sales and there is a section located on this website which indicates the sponsorship packages available as well as the information regarding how to book tickets for the evening.

This year entrants will need to complete a separate application should you wish to be considered for Overall Business of the Year. You can enter for the Overall Business of the Year on its own or if you are entering other categories too, the choice is yours! 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 website and in particular have a look at last year’s roll of honour and gallery which will hopefully whet your appetite for this year’s awards and hopefully you will join me in attending another packed night with the best of Hartlepool’s businesses in May.
