The Cornwall Business Awards will be coming back for 2022. The awards will celebrate businesses who have focused on overcoming the impact of coronavirus by adapting, creating new opportunities, and supporting each other and the community.

Kirsty Miles-Musgrave from the Growth and Skills Hub said “We know how much the business community enjoys coming together to celebrate everything that is great about Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and hearing stories about the amazing companies across the region.

“Even though we still face an uncertain climate, it feels more important than ever to hear the stories of resilience from our local businesses.”

The awards will be back stronger and louder next year, launching on January 10 with an even bigger celebration at the end of June for the gala dinner and awards ceremony.

The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub and Skills Hub organises the awards and are part funded by the European Structural & Investment Funds and match funded by Cornwall Council, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.
