We are delighted to announce that voting for the City of Liverpool Business Awards is now officially open!

We are delighted to announce that voting for the City of Liverpool Business Awards (COLBA) is now officially open!

The Awards were established by Downtown in Business way back in 2004 to acknowledge and honour the many successes and achievements of the local companies and entrepreneurs in Liverpool who have made a continued and significant contribution to economic growth in the city over the past year.

This year, the 21st anniversary year of the awards, will be marked by an exclusive ceremony at The Sefton Park Palm House, attended by entrepreneurs, business leaders, academics, and decision makers from across the city region and beyond.

Over the past two decades we’ve celebrated some groundbreaking companies as well as phenomenal individuals at the awards and it’s been a pleasure to witness the best and brightest in emerging talent go on to achieve fantastic things in their careers.

This year is no exception! The talent level of our lucky shortlist of nominees for COLBA 2024 is second to none.

With so many deserving nominees to choose from, we’re always hard pressed to choose a winner, and that’s where you come in!

We need your votes to decide which of our fantastic nominees will come out on top in each of our award categories.

If you know a company or individual on the list who you feel has gone above and beyond this year and truly deserves to be celebrated for all their hard work, now is your chance to have your say.
