Judging now underway for the 2019 Oldham Business Awards
The judges for this year’s Oldham Business Awards are hard at work to whittle down the entries into the finalists.
Judging is now well underway.
It’s no mean feat for the panel, who are sorting through a record number of entrants across all the categories.
A shortlist of finalists will be announced ahead of a special event, which will take place on Thursday 14 March.
All of those who are nominated will be invited to the event at the home of Innovative Technology, Oldham.
There, they’ll be able to meet fellow entrants, sponsors, and members of the steering group.
Judges are meeting to discuss who should be shortlisted in each of the nine categories.
It will then be all-go for the final preparations for the gala dinner, where the winners will be revealed.
That will take place at Oldham’s Queen Elizabeth Hall at a black-tie ceremony on Friday 26 April.
It is one of the highlights of the business year calendar, with around 600 guests present.
The Oldham Business Awards also raises money for its two nominated charities – Dr Kershaw’s Hospice and the Mahdlo Youth Zone.
