Join this year’s Business Masters – book your tickets today

TheBusinessDesk.com has revealed the shortlist for our East Midlands Business Masters 2022 – and tickets are now available for our Annual Diner on Thursday October 13, from 6.30pm, at the Crowne Plaza in Nottingham city centre.

The awards evening will include key note speakers, drinks reception, three-course dinner, entertainment and, of course, Business Masters awards ceremony.

Tickets for this must-attend event are now available.

The judging panel this year consisted of: Grace Golden of Purpose Media; Rob Darby of 200 Degrees Coffee; Natalie Gasson-McKinley of FSB; Chris Hobson of East Midlands Chamber of Commerce; and Eileen Richards of ER Recruitment.

Wherever there were conflicts of interest, our judges cast their vote for alternative entrants.

Sam Metcalf, Midlands editor at TheBusinessDesk.com, said: ” Obviously the pandemic created a huge number of challenges for businesses in all sectors. Many of our shortlisted companies are those that pivoted or pressed on while others paused – and the results are clear to see.

“The strength of the entries meant plenty of good businesses missed out this year, but we look forward to following their progress.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating their successes, and revealing the winners, at the awards dinner in October.”
