The Gatwick Diamond Business Awards celebrate people and businesses who have shown innovation and inspiration in their work, and have demonstrated a real commitment to the sub-region. The awards have become one of the regions premier business occasions - celebrating the best of the best across the Gatwick Diamond.

 

Any business that is located in or trades in the Gatwick Diamond can enter – you do not need to be a member of any particular business organisation and it is free to enter.

 

There are 13 Categories, which means that there will be a category (or two, or three) for any and every business to enter:

Business of the Year sponsored by NatWest Bank

Business Person of the Year sponsored by KPMG

The Award for Customer Delight sponsored by Extech

Four of the region's biggest businesses are Headline sponsors, demonstrating the importance that the local business community places on the Awards.  These are Emirates Airlines, Gatwick Airport, NatWest Bank and Nestlé.

 

The awards will be presented on the 16th March 2017 at the Gala Ceremony.  The evening starts with a Pre-Dinner Reception sponsored by Irwin Mitchell.  Following the three-course Dinner, the Awards will be presented by Stephen Mangan, the acclaimed actor who has appeared in some of the UK's best TV comedy of recent years, including Episodes, with Matt LeBlanc.

 

The Sponsor is the judge in each category.  There is a scoring sheet with feedback which will be returned to the Entrant.  We check for impartiality between judges and entrants so if there is any conflict of interest then a neutral third party will oversee the judging.  This is essential to find the best of the best!

 

 

After judging takes place through January 2017, the three Finalists in each category are announced in February and then the Awards are presented on the 16th March 2017
