It’s the final call for businesses across Lancashire to enter the national award-winning Red Rose Awards which will close for entries at midnight on Friday 13 January 2017.
The Awards, which has categories relevant to every business in the county, will crown the best firms across 26 categories.
The 2016 event, which was organised by Lancashire Business View magazine, attracted more than 1,100 of the county’s top business people for the celebration at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.
Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View said: “First and foremost the Red Rose Awards are about giving Lancashire business the opportunity to show how great they are and how deep the county’s commercial excellence runs.
“We are giving business the chance to shout about what they do and why they are the best at it – and we hope they’ll grasp that opportunity with both hands by entering. We hope that businesses will take some time to reflect on their achievements and enter the awards before our deadline of midnight on 13 January.
