Oldham Business Awards 2022 – Applications now closed.

The 2022 Oldham Business Awards were officially launched on Monday March 28 2022 and the organisers hope to make this year’s event the biggest and best yet, following the pandemic.

The last gala dinner held in 2019 attracted more than 600 guests and was the biggest business dinner in Greater Manchester.

Chairman Steve Kilroy says “The awards are getting bigger and better year on year thanks to the support of the Oldham business community.

“We have always enjoyed fantastic support, from the early days of 2008 when we set about organising the very first event.

“After two years without the awards, and the gala dinner when everyone gets together to celebrate all that is good about Oldham, I am convinced there is an appetite to get back to normality.”

This year’s awards dinner will take place on Friday September 9 with Oldham Council leaders confirming that the town’s premier venue, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, will be available.
