The sparkling black-tie evening at the exclusive Grand Sapphire Hotel is the climax of the prestigious 2017 awards and have been a hot ticket for Croydon’s ambitious companies.

The highlight of the fabulous evening, compered by award-winning comedian and sports pundit Kevin Day, will be the announcement of the winners of the 14 awards categories as well as the overall Business of the Year.

More than 200 firms entered the awards in 2017 – up 50% on last year – and a record 85 companies were shortlisted.

The independent adjudicator who drew up the shortlist, Ross Sturley of business consultants Chart Lane, commented: “This year’s crop of entries were even harder to judge than last year’s with the quality improving right across the board.”
