Innovation Awards now open

Posted by on 24 August 2020 | Comments


2020 Innovation Awards LogoForward thinking businesses - large and small - are being invited to enter the inaugural Innovation Awards 2020.

2020 has been a challenging year for businesses, many of whom have had to adapt and change their way of working to overcome the restrictions caused by COVID-19. 

Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils' Innovation Awards will celebrate and recognise businesses who have put innovation at the heart of what they do. Businesses who are creating initiatives, supporting customers and leading best practice across the districts.

The awards are for businesses, based within the districts, who want to showcase how they are using/delivering:

  • innovative practices 
  • cutting edge technology
  • sustainable solutions
  • outstanding customer service

Entering the awards is free and there are 11 categories in a range of sectors. These include food, retail and healthcare. The awards are open to organisations of any size and will recognise businesses, teams and individuals.

There is a category for SMEs and an opportunity to find the innovators of the future, with an award for those aged 16-25.

Originally planned as a black-tie event for June, we are leading by example and adopting a virtual format. This is to adhere to current social distancing guidelines. Nominees and sponsors will still benefit from exclusive online networking opportunities and celebrate innovation. The virtual event will take place on Tuesday 3 November.

The nomination process is quick, easy and can be completed online in a matter of minutes. There is no limit to the number of categories you can enter. 

Nominate an individual, team or business

Nominations close on Sunday 27 September.

Full details of categories are available in the Sponsorship Prospectus
