Launch of the Test Valley Business Awards 2016

The Test Valley Business Awards 2016 officially launches in March – another year celebrating local business excellence!

The 12th annual Test Valley Business Awards will be officially launched on 4 March, at The White Horse Hotel & Brasserie, Romsey. Guest Speaker, The Revd. Canon Tim Sledge, Vicar of Romsey Abbey, will give us a fascinating insight into why business matters and what is like to manage one of the largest visitor attractions in the borough.

The event will begin at 12pm and finish by 2pm.

Test Valley Business Awards has become a well-established platform to promote local businesses, especially enabling new and smaller enterprises, to gain the recognition and exposure to be able to grow; the launch marking the official opening of entries for 2016.

“I am delighted and honored to be part of the Test Valley Business Awards which are a great celebration and a success story for this area,” comments The Revd. Cannon Tim Sledge. “These awards are both a celebration of success but also of entrepreneurs working together not just to make money, but to improve the common good.”

Historically well-attended by Sponsors, local businesses, and business groups, the launch promises to be an ideal opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere with like-minded business representatives.

The Worshipful The Mayor of Test Valley, Cllr Iris Andersen, who is a passionate supporter of small businesses, will introduce proceedings and say a few words in support of the Test Valley business community.

Refreshments will be provided and places are FREE so must be booked in advance (places are limited to 2 per business).
