The Bridport Business Awards, organised by events company Marketing West, in conjunction with the Bridport Chamber and the FSB, has received 25% more entries than expected.
Said the event’s organiser, Nigel Reeve of Marketing West, “We wanted the awards to involve a wide range of businesses and that’s what has happened. We want the awards to have a real community feel, and all involved are delighted with the response.
Each entrant will now be visited or called by an independent mystery shopper, and the winners will be announced at an awards lunch on Thursday, 5th March. After the lunch, each entrant will then receive a confidential copy of their report produced by the mystery shopper.”
As well as the entries, local businesses have supported the awards by becoming category sponsors. The sponsors include Porter Dodson, Hayward and Co, Poundbury Wealth Management, the Bridport Chamber, IT Support 365, Footeprints, Watershed PR, the Highlands End Leisure Holidays and Marketing West.
