Celebrating your Success

Each year the Marlborough Chamber of Commerce’s Business Excellence Awards are a highlight of the local business events calendar.

 

*Due to Covid19 restrictions and uncertainties, the Awards Dinner has been moved to Friday 25th March 2022.* 

 

 

The Awards are a showcase of the region’s business talent and capability, and a platform for paying tribute to those building our economy and community. The Awards deliver real benefits to organisations entering, through self-assessment during the entry process, the exposure they receive, the boost in staff morale and the public recognition of the organisation’s achievements.
