Enterprise Vision Awards unveils new date

The 10th anniversary of the Enterprise Vision Awards will now take place on Friday 5 February 2021, having been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The awards are dedicated solely to female entrepreneurship, and are backed by both Lancashire Business View as media partner and Natwest as headline sponsor.

The search is on for winning women and is a chance for businesswomen to shine the spotlight on their successes and achievements.

Coral Horn, founder of the EVAs, said: "The economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the challenges of balancing familial and business responsibilities whilst staying visible and relevant have weighed heavily on female shoulders. It’s important that we all show our support for the strong, dynamic and determined women in the region. Nominate those amazing women and help them to get their business noticed.”

Open to all sectors, from bakers to bankers, there are 16 categories to be won and an additional category which is chosen from all the finalists; the Outstanding Achievement award. To mark ten years of outstanding businesswomen, the finalists of the Young Entrepreneur and the Charity categories will each receive a free ticket to the ceremony.

The awards will be presented at a glittering ceremony at the iconic Empress Ballroom in the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. The closing date for entries has been extended until midnight on Friday 30 October 2020.

A series of online information events will be held so that nominees can discover how the awards can impact on their business. The first event will take place on Tuesday 11 August.
