Our Vision

The North West Business Awards is not just about filling a room with businesses and having a chicken dinner.

Our aim is to create a process and awards system which only provides awards to those companies that are truly deserving of being recognised as on the top businesses in the North West of England.

By pitting the best of Liverpool, Cheshire, Manchester, Lancashire and Cumbria against each other, we aim to create an awards process whereby companies can be proud of winning the North West Business Awards.
