Following a 15 year tradition, the City of Liverpool Business Awards in association with Epica Health & Safety was another huge success. The awards, which filled the enchanting Sefton Park Palm House with Liverpool’s leading business men and women, and organised by leading private sector lobby group Downtown in Business, rewarded the achievements of the best businesses in the city region.
With 17 businesses taking DIB awards home on the evening of Thursday 12th July 2018, DIB CEO and Chairman Frank McKenna said; “Downtown in Business is not only proud to celebrate it’s 15th City of Liverpool Business Awards, but following in suit over the past decade and a half, bringing together the best in business in Liverpool to celebrate the working achievement of our industry peers.
As always, tonight’s guest list is impressive enough, but the calibre of nominees is spectacular. Year on year Liverpool continues to improve and impress.
The quality of business leadership in Liverpool never ceases to amaze me, and events like The City of Liverpool Business Awards are designed to recognise just that. Congratulations to all of tonight’s winners and many thanks to headline sponsor Epica Health & Safety, and all of the award sponsors.”
