COMPANIES can get involved in our popular business awards by becoming a category sponsor.
We have a significant number of corporate sponsorship opportunities for each category, which has already drawn interest from firms eager to play their part.
The University of Chichester is sponsoring this year’s overall business of the year award category. As one of the event’s key supporters, it has excelled in providing business-focused education which is being delivered through its new School of Enterprise Management and Leadership.
Sandra Coley, business development manager at the university said: “The university has a strong relationship with the business community and we see the Observer awards as a way of reaching out to companies in the area.”
As ever, we are anticipating a strong response from residents and companies across our readership, so don’t miss out on your chance to get involved. You can either nominate a worthy firm or individual, or consider taking up sponsorship, which has proved a powerful marketing tool for previous winners and those involved with the awards.
