2018 search for Croydon’s best businesses launches 21st March

Croydon’s biggest and most prestigious business awards will launch for 2018 at a sparkling party on Wednesday, 21st March.

Now in their seventh year, Croydon Business Excellence Awards in association with Willmott Dixon, celebrate the successes and achievements of the borough’s large and vibrant business community.

The launch reception, from 6pm to 8pm at Renaissance, 9-16 Dingwall Road, Croydon CR0 2NA, is sponsored by Green Network Energy and Renaissance and is FREE to attend. Open to all business people across the borough, guests will hear inspirational speeches and details of the 2018 awards programme – and learn how they can follow in the footsteps of last year’s winners, pictured above.

There will be an Italian theme to the evening with canapes served by Bagatti’s, the 2017 Best Business for Food and Hospitality, as well as cocktails from Mobile Bar Hire, and entertainment – Italian-style!

Speaking on behalf of headline sponsor Willmott Dixon, Roger Forsdyke, managing director of Willmott Dixon in South London and the Southern Home Counties, said: “We have worked in the borough for a number of years and are delighted to be one of the many businesses that contribute to making a difference for the people of Croydon. Therefore, it is with great pride that we are able to sponsor the Croydon Business Awards to celebrate all of their fantastic achievements.”

Launch sponsor, Green Network Energy also welcomed the 2018 awards. Sabrina Corbo, Executive Vice-President, commented: “Green Network Energy is about accepting challenges, doing things differently, and using our passion in our business. We started our careers in 2003 as a start-up and we pushed our entrepreneurial attitudes further and higher, moving into the UK in 2014 to create Green Network Energy.
“We believe in talent and have always supported new talent to build their professional careers. That’s why today we want to promote and encourage talented entrepreneurs to take the next step and be the new generation of successful businesses. We consider the Croydon Business Excellence Awards a great opportunity to support the best talent and the start-ups that will bring growth to Croydon.”

Since their inception, the awards have gone from strength to strength, with last year’s event attracting a record number of entries and over 450 people to the glittering awards ceremony.
The finale of the 2018 programme, the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony hosted by a celebrity compere at Grand Sapphire Hotel & Banqueting Suites on Thursday, 4th October, promises be yet another hot ticket for Croydon’s business community.

As well as Willmott Dixon and Green Network Energy, the 2018 awards are sponsored by Allianz Partners, AMP House, Chequers Cleaning Contract Services, Superdrug, and Sussex Innovation Centre and supported by Mobile Bar Hire, and Handelsbanken.
