The deadline for entries for the 2013 Wiltshire Business awards is this coming Tuesday, January 14.

Entries have been coming in thick and fast for the 20th anniversary awards, which will take place on Friday, April 4, at Center Parcs, Longleat.

Launched in 1993, the awards have become one of the most prestigious business events in the South West with more than 100 firms taking part in the hope of being named Wiltshire Business of the Year.

The awards are sponsored by the Wiltshire Times, Gazette & Herald and Swindon Advertiser, plus our main sponsor Thrings with whom we have been working for the past 12 months.

Shamus Donald, regional managing director of Newsquest Wiltshire & Oxfordshire, which publishes the Wiltshire newspapers, said: “Awards make companies feel good about themselves, something which permeates through from the top to the bottom in the firm’s structure. Winning an award gives a firm a special buzz. ”
