Last few tickets remain for Hub Awards


Tickets for this year’s Hub Awards have been snapped up quicker than ever.

Only a few tickets remain for the event, which will once again celebrate the individual efforts of those young entrepreneurs and employees making a real difference in the Cornish business community.

Sponsored by Business Link, Cornwall Development Company and Unlocking Cornish Potential, the much-awaited awards will take place on Thursday November 26 at the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay.

The awards’ guest speaker will be Dave Meneer, CEO of Fifteen Cornwall. Before Dave joined the Jamie Oliver-inspired restaurant in September 2007, he was the Marketing Director at the Eden Project, Dave will be sharing his thoughts on ‘how to sustain success in the county’ and talk about Cornwall’s enterprising and dynamic spirit.

Tickets for the Hub Awards are priced at £25 each. The ticket price includes a drink on arrival and a three-course meal and guests can expect to see a great showcase of outstanding individuals and companies from the region.

Shortlisted candidates have made it through a panel up against some of Cornwall’s leading business people and the winners will be unveiled at the glittering ceremony.

People from across the Cornish business community will come together and hear the winners of the Employee of the Year, Innovator of the Year, Best Business Start up and Entrepreneur of the Year awards categories.

The Hub committee will also reward the Hub member they think has been invaluable to the Hub’s growth and success and will hand out an award for Hub Contributor of the Year.

Hub committee member Andrew Weaver of Live Events South West, said: “We’re delighted about the response to this year’s Hub Awards and are really excited about unveiling the winners at what should be the most exciting awards yet. We’re really grateful to our sponsors Business Link, Cornwall Development Company and Unlocking Cornish Potential for supporting the evening and look forward to showcasing the talent that Cornwall has to offer.”

Initially set up for young business people in Cornwall, The Hub has expanded to accommodate people working at all levels of business, from newly appointed graduates to company directors. The events also regularly attract newly formed start up businesses as well as well established Cornish companies.

The events, which are held on the last Thursday of every month, are planned to support the development and requirements of business people from all sectors. From workshops and speed networking events, to summer socials and the highly anticipated annual awards ceremony, The Hub calendar offers a number of opportunities to network with like-minded people.

The Hub is a not for profit organisation sponsored by a number of public and private sector businesses. The events are planned and managed by a committee of volunteers, who give up their time to produce a varied plan of events.
