Chippenham Business Awards 2017

Chippenham Business Awards- Supported by Chippenham BID

Thursday 23rd February 2017


Chippenham has a great deal to boast about when it comes to business. From incredible start-up companies that are now internationally known, to big brands, exciting exclusive independents and professional services- there isn’t a great deal you can’t find in this picturesque hub nestled nicely in the South West of England.

As Wiltshire’s largest and arguably most lively market town, we believe Chippenham’s buzz begins with the boundless energy of this fantastic business environment and of course, all of this cannot be made possible without certain people. This is why we are dedicating an entire evening to those that truly bring the town to life with the Chippenham Business Awards, in association with Chippenham BID – coming your way on Thursday 23rd February 2017.

Following the success of 2013’s Business Awards and the incredible accolades that were acknowledged on the night, this event will transport you back to the Neeld Community and Arts Centre, right in the heart of Chippenham. This will be a black tie event featuring a ‘Roaring Twenties’ theme to add that extra twist- allowing you to let your hair down and enjoy an evening of glitz and glamour to celebrate all of your hard work, plus support local businesses by recognising the vast array of achievements within Chippenham’s business environment.

Once you have taken your first step down the coveted ‘Purple Carpet’, you’ll receive star treatment from the get go, with a drinks reception, photographers, film crews and entertainment – plus of course a delicious three course meal before the unveiling of the winners. You’ll also have the chance to take a ‘spin’ at the casino – with photo opportunities a-plenty and a few surprises!

The Chippenham Business Awards have been supported by our main sponsors; Awdry Bailey & Douglas Solicitors of Chippenham, as well as Digiprint and 24/7 Staffing.

Nicole Johnston, Manager of the Buttercross Inn, Chippenham BID Director and Chair of the BID’s Events Sub-Committee said:

“Chippenham is such a unique place to work, as there is such a strong sense of community and companionship in the business environment. This event will allow people to truly celebrate the achievements of their friends and colleagues within the town and support them on their way to their award!”

Ben Gregory, Chair of Chippenham BID and MD of the Digiprint Group, said:

“We’re really excited to be bringing this event back to Chippenham. Celebrating business achievements, getting the community together and having fun in the process is what it’s all about and we can’t wait to see who’ll be scooping up a special award!”
