Uckfield Business Awards 2022
Thursday 29 September 2022 / 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm£49.50
It’s the most glitzy night of the year! For well over a decade now, the Uckfield Business Awards have been a biennial feature of the town’s business scene although, sadly like every other event in 2020 didn’t happen as originally planned last year. But, fear not they are set to return on Thursday 29 September 2022 at the East Sussex National resort.
Planning these awards is a year in the making so it felt right that on Wednesday 22 September 2021, the 2022 event was announced at the Chamber members’ meeting, a complete year and a week until the big night. Of course, the awards can only happen with good engagement from our business community; it’s an opportunity to recognise excellence locally and enjoy a special occasion with the ‘great & good’ of Uckfield!
Like 2018, the last time we held the awards, our headline sponsor is CJ Thorne & Co., a third generation firm of civil engineering contractors. Thornes themselves are no strangers to winning prestigious industry awards and it is fitting that such a well recognised business leads the way with our sponsorship for the event. While Thornes will present the overall winner with their award on the night, we will have 15 award categories before we get to the true ‘drum roll’ part of the evening. And so, there are plenty of opportunities for Uckfield businesses to come forward as a category sponsor. Benefits of sponsorship package (costing £800) include:
- Pre-event marketing publicity across social media
- Attend a sponsors’ drinks reception (2 people)
- Interview on Uckfield FM
- Sponsor features in Uckfield Matters magazine
- Opportunity to select the winner & highly commended in your category
- Present the award on the night
- Four tickets for the event
Once we have our event sponsors in place, we will announce how you can enter your own business or nominate someone else, who must then confirm they’d like to enter. Our entry form process will be online and we will then involve our sponsors in the selection process, with our guidance through experience of managing entries down the years! It’s FREE to enter the awards and being a finalist is a great way to get your business noticed locally.
The evening itself consists of a welcome drink reception followed by three courses with four bottles of wine on each table of 10 people. The presentation of the awards is split in to three sections and the awards alternate with the courses, so you can take your time sampling the culinary delights of the award winning chef at the hotel, while waiting in anticipation of the respective award winners. Individual tickets can be purchased for the evening costing just £49.50 or for a table of 10; do the maths: £495. Places can be reserved now with nothing to pay until at least March 2022.
