THE Essex Business Awards were a huge success as the hard work and dedication of businesses across the county was honoured. 

Established for 20 years, the awards celebrate the very best business successes in the area. 

The aim of the awards is to raise company awareness, increase networking opportunities and improve company image and customer confidence.

The awards recognise the efforts of companies who have one thing in common - the dedication to achieve excellence.

The awards are open to all companies in Essex regardless of size.
