“There are some great trades businesses out there and these awards will give them the accreditation they deserve. It’s a great opportunity for trades businesses to raise their profile and we look forward to receiving the applications.”

The awards are open to all trades businesses across the region and are free to enter. There are 11 awards up for the taking, covering eight categories: Home Improvement, Best Trades Business, Trades Employer of the Year, Excellence in IT, Overall Trades Business of the Year, New Business Award, Innovation and Best in Customer Service.
