On the 7th of September we attended the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, at the glittering Pride Park Stadium. We were joined by some of the most established business men and women from across Derbyshire to celebrate the success of local businesses from around the county.
This year, we managed to top last years two nominations by reaching the finals for Manufacturer of the Year, Small Business of the Year and our very own Amanda Strong, was in the final of the Entrepreneur of the Year category! We managed to impress the judges with our applications and we are overwhelmed they had selected us to be a finalist in each of the respective categories.
On the night there were 13 different awards that were presented across a range of categories with an enjoyable three-course meal and fabulous entertainment from the band, My Mate Kate, who played some great songs to celebrate with everybody. As always, the awards night was an amazing experience to be a part of and it was great to meet so many new business people as well as see some familiar faces!
Fortunately, on the night we managed to come out as the winner in the Small Business of the Year category! Everyone at Mercia Image Print is so pleased to have won this award because of the sheer hard work that everyone has put in to make this possible. Our Managing Director, Amanda Strong, said “This is a great achievement for the whole company and shows the commitment and dedication of the team to make sure that our clients have the best experience possible working with us”. Mercia Image Print were also runner up in Manufacturer of the Year and Amanda Strong was runner up in the Entrepreneur of the Year category which are two other amazing accomplishments.
We would like to congratulate all of the winners and finalists on the night, it’s a tremendous achievement and one that you should be extremely proud of. The East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Business Awards are some of the most coveted awards in the Midlands with people all across the region applying to be in the competition. We would like to say a massive thank you to all our customers for helping us achieve this award, we could not have done it without you and we would like to thank you for your continued support throughout the years.
