Dorset Business Awards: Honoring Excellence and Innovation in the Heart of the South West

The Dorset Business Awards recently celebrated the innovation and excellence of companies in the county, marking its return after a four-year hiatus. The awards were the highlight of the Dorset Chamber’s first business festival, which included a series of events such as an expo and the Future of Business Conference. A panel of independent experts judged entries across ten categories, with participants ranging from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to large global companies.

The Business Festival was a resounding success, attracting over 1,000 attendees over the course of four days. It was the most ambitious program of events ever organized by the chamber. Despite the challenging climate in all sectors over the past four years, the festival generated a real buzz within the business community. It showcased the inspiring resilience, determination, and innovation present in Dorset businesses.

The panel of judges played a crucial role in maintaining the high standards of the awards. Their robust assessment process ensured that only the most deserving companies were recognized. The caliber of entries was exceptionally high, and it was encouraging to see participation from various types of companies, including SMEs, family businesses, and large global corporations.

Congratulations to all the winners and those who were shortlisted. Their achievements are commendable and reflect their dedication to excellence and innovation. The Dorset Chamber is grateful to all the participants and hopes to see their continued involvement in future editions of the awards.

A special thanks goes to the Premier Festival Partner, Lester Aldridge, and the Festival Partners, Bournemouth and Poole College, Blue Sky Financial Planning, Dorset Council, The Dolphin Poole, and YMCA Bournemouth, for their support in making the festival a success.
