Nominations in for 2018 Business Awards


Nominations are in for the Island’s prestigious 2018 Business Awards for Excellence, in association with Red Funnel – and judges say the standard has never been higher.

The awards will be presented in a ceremony at Cowes Yacht Haven on November 30, to be hosted by Anneka Rice.

“It’s an incredible shortlist that has given our panel of judges an incredibly hard job,” says the Chamber’s Chief Executive Steven Holbrook.

In fact the number of entries has doubled this year and the new panel of 18 expert judges say the standard has never been higher.   Nominees are:
