We are delighted to announce that entries for this year’s Reigate & Banstead Business Awards are now officially open.

The awards, which will take place on 23 November at Reigate Manor, are a celebration of local businesses, their success, and contribution to the local community.

The introduction, this year, of the Apprentice of the Year award means that the award categories have increased from nine to ten – creating plenty of opportunities for businesses of all sizes and types to bag an award.

Get recognised

“I’m delighted that the Reigate & Banstead Business Awards will be held again this year. The 2022 awards were a great success and we look forward to welcoming our brilliant businesses back again to this fantastic local event.

“We don’t want any of our businesses, large or small, to miss out on this opportunity to get involved and to gain some well-deserved recognition for all their hard work. There is a wide range of award categories, so something for everyone.”

Businesses can enter themselves for several categories, and anyone is free to nominate a business of their choice.

We are once again grateful to our Headline Sponsor – Morr & Co – a leading firm of solicitors with offices in Surrey, Hampshire and SW London, who have been a part of the business community in the Borough since they first opened an office in Reigate in 1729.

Other sponsors this year include among others, Moore Kingston Smith, the Belfry Shopping Centre, RETHINK Print & Marketing Services, Jemca Toyota, Agile Ability, Surrey Chamber of Commerce and Reigate Manor.

Spaces for event sponsors

We have a limited number of spaces left for additional event sponsors, so if you are interested, please do get in touch. The awards give sponsors a valuable opportunity to raise their profile in the local area and with other local businesses, build their local networks, connect with new customers, and enhance their reputation with existing customers.

Catherine Fisher, Managing Partner of Morr & Co, said: “We're proud to be the headline sponsor of the Reigate & Banstead Business Awards. These awards play an important role in showcasing and recognising the very best of our business community, and the part they play in the local economy.

This year’s awards ceremony will be hosted by Ortis Deley, presenter of The Gadget Show. With a wide range of businesses tipped to attend, you won’t want to miss it!
