Winners of the

Every year, we celebrate the “Best of the Best” in Arun’s business community through our Arun Business of the Year Awards.
We’ve been running the awards for over 20 years and seen many of winners go on to become industry leaders in their sector.
Due to the pandemic, we weren’t able to run the Business of the Year Awards in 2020 and 2021 but we hope to be back bigger and better than ever when our world returns to a “new normal.”
Here’s how we celebrated at our most recent event in 2019.
