Not sure if it’s worth entering this year’s Arun Business of the Year Awards? 

Please, spend a couple of minutes reading this article, and we’ll try and convince you that nominating your company could be the best business decision you make this year.

Firstly, it’s FREE to enter!

And, if you are nominated, you will get two free tickets for the glittering Awards Ceremony at the Hilton Avisford Park Hotel in November.

A big shiny trophy

Winners of the Arun Business of the Year Awards receive an engraved trophy which is yours to keep and display for 12 months. 

You’ll also receive a stunning engraved piece of glassware which is yours to keep and show off to your customers and visitors for ever.

FREE publicity

The Bognor Regis Post newspaper is one of our major sponsors and promotes the awards through fantastic media coverage for three months in the run up to the Awards Ceremony.

After the Awards Ceremony, it publishes a full-colour feature naming all the winners.

As the awards are non-profit making and supported by Arun District Council, other local media like the Littlehampton Gazette, Spirit FM and the Bognor Regis Observer usually cover the awards.

Arun Business Partnership (ABP) website (

Arun Business Partnership runs the awards and photographs and details of all the winners are featured on the ABP website for 12 months.

With 2,000 member businesses in the partnership from across Arun District, that’s a lot of exposure to potential customers, suppliers and future employees.

If you sell B2B (Business to Business), introducing your company as an Arun Business of the Year award winner could open the door to a very fruitful working relationship.

Boost staff morale

Your team will be thrilled if your company wins an award and will be sure to tell all their friends and family.

Just entering for an award is a great way to say thank you to your employees and let them know how important they are for your business. 

Winning is the icing on the cake and the perfect excuse to celebrate and grow closer as a team.

Something to shout about

Winning – and entering – for an award is a good news story that your company can shout about and promote to your customers.

All winners and finalists receive a logo which you can add to your website, promote on social media and use on your company stationery.

It can be a great conversation starter with new customers and could provide that all-important “foot in the door” with potential clients.

And finally – it’s FREE to enter!

Did we mention it’s FREE to enter?

Why wouldn’t you spend an hour of your time entering for an award that could put you head and shoulders above your competitors, re-energise your team and help you win new business?
