BIBAs 2021 winners announced

The winners of the 2021 Be Inspired Business Awards have been revealed.

The BIBAs is organised by the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and took place at the Tower Ballroom.

More than 140 businesses competed for 20 awards, which Chamber chief executive said included some of the best entries that had received in a long time

Babs said:  “When we started the BIBAs 2021 campaign in January, the word ‘celebration’ wasn’t the first word on our lips when looking back over a challenging 12 months.

“But that quickly changed. Having witnessed energy of our sponsors, the demand for entries and tickets, read many wonderful business stories and seen how our resilient Lancastrians have risen to the challenge, we knew this would be a successful year.

“Seeing the calibre of finalists, their stories, their people and progress gives me the utmost certainty that we can look forward with confidence as a county. It has been a privilege to be involved in these awards and to have so many local business people come together to celebrate our world-class Lancashire business community.”
