Drogheda Chamber: Business Excellence Awards

Nov 18, 2017

Do you strive to be the best that you can be?  Does your business show leadership and innovation in your field?  Would you like to be recognised for your hard work and determination? 

The awards are a great opportunity to showcase your business and with new categories added this year, there is something for everyone.

They are open to Drogheda and the surrounding areas and both members and non-members are eligible to enter.  And it’s free!

These Business Excellence Awards which are in their 13th year, will be launched on the 8th of September in The Highlanes Gallery.

The Launch will provide guests with a better understanding of the awards themselves and the benefits involved in entering. Our head judge, Padraig Warren will be on hand for any questions or queries that you may have regarding the entry procedure, what the judges are looking for and the categories you can enter.

This is also a fantastic opportunity to network with the local business community and we invite all businesses to attend this free event.  Registration is at 5.00p.m followed by some refreshments and finger food before we have our brief outline on the Awards.
