Courier Business Awards

The Event

This year we are celebrating five years of The Courier Business Awards and we want you to celebrate with us.

The prestigious awards recognise business and individuals from across Tayside, Fife, Perthshire and Angus; businesses and individuals with entrepreneurial flair, who are pushing the envelope in the pursuit of commercial success and who go that extra mile to serve their customers and put the community at the heart of everything they do.

There are 21 categories, plus the coveted Business of The Year, sponsored by our title partner Henderson Loggie, that is awarded to a shortlisted company which stands out from the pack and exhibits determination to achieve excellence in their field and create wealth and opportunity along the way.

New for 2017 is the Entrepreneurship in Education Award and The Family Business of The Year award has been split into geographical regions, so we have The Family of the year for Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Fife, as well as one of those businesses being awarded overall Family Business of the year. If you are a family business, there are more reasons than ever to enter.

Widely recognised as the leading business awards for Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Fife and continuing to grow year on year to become the largest event of its kind in the area, it is returning to the grounds of the Apex to ensure a very special night to remember.

All of our finalists have one thing in common! They can never believe that they were shortlisted, this could be you. To ensure your business gets the recognition it deserves this year, enter now.
