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 21st October. 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 and they have very kindly agreed to let the main sponsor for the 2017 Awards. The awards evening continues to go from strength to strength and has become one of the most attended events of 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. I personally hope you are ready for another exciting and up uplifting night in May.

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