WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS YEAR’S PRESTIGIOUS OLDHAM BUSINESS AWARDS ARE OPEN FOR ENTRIES.

Now in their 16th year, the awards recognise and reward excellence, acumen, and entrepreneurial spirit among the borough’s business community, and also celebrate the community contribution made by local good causes, raising more than £56,000 for local charities in that time.

 

Every year, the OBA’s steering group – a volunteer team of dedicated business professionals hailing from a diverse range of locally based enterprises – have the unenviable task of judging and selecting winners of 11 awards and the recipient of the Special Recognition Award.

 

It will all climax in a glittering gala dinner on Friday 13th September 2024 – lucky for some – at Oldham’s iconic Queen Elizabeth Hall.
