Media release: ROCCO 2010 shortlist announced


The ROCCO Business Awards 2010 sponsored by The Phoenix Car Company are the annual business awards for Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce giving members and companies based in Renfrewshire, the opportunity to be recognised for their business success.

Now in its seventh year, the ROCCO’s are by far, the main business event in Renfrewshire with almost 500 people attending the awards dinner.

Thank you to all that entered. A shortlist of three companies are chosen from each category.
