Courier Business Awards

The Event

Apex Hotel Dundee – Saturday, October 27, 2018.

We’re back… and this year we are celebrating six years of The Courier Business Awards.

Join us for a night with the stars at our prestigious awards, held at the Apex Hotel Dundee on Saturday, October 27, where we recognise and reward business and individuals from across Dundee, 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.

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, we are proud to be 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.
