The finalists of this year's Buckinghamshire Business Awards have been announced with a ceremony to be held next month.

There are eleven categories each with three finalists having a chance to pick up an award handed out by Buckinghamshire Business First.

In addition, there will be an overall 'Company of the Year Award' which will be presented to the business that best represents Buckinghamshire in terms of its success, commitment and contribution to the local community and economy.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at The Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on September 28, with tickets on sale now.

At this year’s ceremony, there will be a charity raffle in support of Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research (SMSR).

Founded in 2006, SMSR is an independent, national charity seeking to promote quality of life in people with spinal cord injuries through research. 

Phililppa Batting, managing director of Buckinghamshire Business First said: "After two challenging years, it’s been wonderful to see so many businesses in Buckinghamshire flourishing, and I know that our category judges struggled to narrow down a high standard of entrants to only three finalists.

"After presenting awards on the road in 2021, this year we’ll be back to enjoying the awards ceremony in style at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre and celebrating with all our winners and finalists in person.

"In the meantime, many congratulations to all the finalists on their achievements."
