The shortlisted of finalists have been unveiled for the eleventh annual Oldham Business Awards 2019 at a reception hosted by Innovative Technology.
Category sponsors and finalists were invited to the reception at the Derker-based company, where they had the chance to meet other and volunteer organisers from the business awards steering group.
The winners for each category will be announced at the Oldham Business Awards 2019 gala ceremony, which takes place on the evening of Friday 26th April, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Innovative Technology has been an Oldham Business Awards sponsor for many years.
Speaking at the reception for shortlisted finalists, Dayna Patterson, the company’s marketing manager, thanked all sponsors for their valued support and congratulated the finalists for being shortlisted.
Judging panels, which include representatives of the category sponsors, reviewed all this year’s business award entries at the start of the year before shortlisting three finalists for each of the ten categories.
Their picks for each award can be found below.
The eleventh anniversary awards will be hosted by BBC news presenter Louise Minchin and ITV’s Caroline Whitmore.
