Introducing the Winchester Business Excellence Awards 2017

The Winchester Business Excellence Awards are back, for the fifteenth year running. The prestigious awards celebrate business in Winchester, including both established firms and the growing businesses which will become our city’s future. The awards have become an integral part of the Winchester calendar and we are delighted to welcome back Denplan as our principal sponsors for the fifth year running.


On the 11th January, the official launch event will introduce this year’s sponsors and new award categories to interested parties. We will also be joined by Anchor Pipework, who won the Small – Medium Enterprise award and then scooped the overall Business of the Year award in 2016. Anchor Pipework will be discussing how their participation in the awards has affected their business over the year and answering questions from new entrants for 2017.


This free event, held at Winchester Cathedral’s Wessex Learning Centre is open to all – to join us for drinks and canapes just register your interest with the Chamber of Commerce here 


The 2017 awards will see the arrival of some new categories, including Employer of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year, as well as some of the old favourites whose popularity grow each year. We are also excited to announce our 2017 sponsors, who will be joining us at the launch and promoting their chosen categories.


Our new-look WBEA website will be live very soon and here you can find category information and judging criteria as well as making your application. There will also be entry forms available at the launch evening and from the Chamber of Commerce and Winchester BID.
