Finalists await public vote and judging ahead of ceremony on October 26
Finalists have been announced for this year’s Innovation in Business Awards, organised by Liverpool Chamber. This year’s awards have generated an incredible response from businesses, with nearly 150 nominations being made across the 15 categories. The unprecedented volume of entries has required a shortlist to be produced ahead of the event on Thursday 26 October at St George’s Hall. Featuring a number of new categories including Experience Provider of the Year, Innovative Product, Talent Development and Innovation Leadership, this year’s awards will welcome more than 400 people to a celebration of business creation, ideation and achievement.
The award winners will be decided by an equal split combination of public vote and judging panel verdict. The public vote will now take place until Friday 1 September alongside a judging panel scoring of each application. The combination of both scores will decide which of the shortlisted businesses and individuals will receive a prize at the awards ceremony at St George’s Hall on Thursday 26 October. Paul Cherpeau, Chief Executive of Liverpool Chamber, said: “Last year, we received more than 15,000 public votes for the Innovation in Business Awards and we fully expect this year’s ballot to be just as popular, with so many high-calibre businesses on the shortlist. The awards serve to recognise and celebrate those businesses, and the individuals who lead them, that have driven forward throughout the past year, often in very challenging economic circumstances. The high number of nominations for some of our new categories demonstrates the collective appreciation and understanding of how businesses have continued to adapt and innovate. We know that St George’s Hall will be a wonderful venue for this celebration and we look forward to seeing who will take to the stage to claim their awards this year.”
