Celebrating all that is excellent in business Letterkenny Chamber today launches the Chamber Business Awards 2021. Scaled back but still important to mark the achievements of businesses in Donegal over the past 18 months.
Launching the awards Letterkenny Chamber President Michael Margey said, “today we are delighted to open our 2021 awards for applications. The Business Awards have become an important part of Letterkenny Chamber’s annual calendar of events and over the years they have become popular with businesses of all types and sizes as they compete for the top spots. This year we aren’t able to have our Gala Dinner but we will be showcasing the shortlisted entries, sponsors and winners across our social media platforms.”
“Over the last 18 months we have seen so many business leaders change their business model to cope with the immediate crisis they faced, many quickly got online, moved to remote offices and overall demonstrated their agility, flexibility and determination. Our categories this year reflect and celebrate their success.”
The categories this year are : Best Local online; Business Excellence; Sustainable Superstar; Best Use of Social Media, Excellence in Export; Health & Well Being; Innovating in a Pandemic.
The awards will open for application through Letterkenny Chamber Website until 8th October, they will then be shortlisted by a judging panel and each category promoted on social media when the public can get to vote for their favourite. The winners will be announced live on Facebook towards the end of November.
Toni Forrester, CEO of Letterkenny Chamber said, “we are delighted to be able to have the Chamber Business Awards again this year and have been able to secure many of our previous sponsors. It is only with the support of sponsors that we can make this happen. Over the past 18 months we have had many messages telling us of the excellent experiences people have had with businesses going the extra mile to help customers and their community during the restrictions. We will of course miss the black tie event but we did not want to let this year pass without celebrating the achievements of our business community.”
“We urge businesses in Letterkenny and across Donegal to apply and submit their entries as soon as possible through the Letterkenny Chamber website. This will be a great way to celebrate success and determination and to end the year on a high note.”
