We’ve been running the awards for over 20 years and seen many of our winners go on to become industry leaders in their sector.

We are back bigger and better than ever for the 2022 Awards.

Our district is home to world-leading industry pioneers, talented youngsters and businesses who use their success to improve their community.

Arun Business Awards provide a fantastic opportunity for the local business community to come together and celebrate the massive contribution it makes to the Arun District.

Our Awards recognise “the Best of the Best” and are open to anyone who runs a business in the Arun District – from sole traders to multi-national global brands.

We believe success is not just measured by turnover and profit – it’s about how a business sets itself apart from the competition and always goes the extra mile for its customers or its community and the people who live there.

Entering the Arun Business Awards is simple and FREE! The only requirement is that businesses must have an address in Arun District to enter the awards.
