“To make the shortlist again, and in three different categories, makes us extremely proud and excited in equal measures.

“It shows the hard work and dedication our team puts into delivering events that support the Lancashire business community and  it’s a testament to all those who contribute to our events – our entrants, judges, sponsors and suppliers - who make the events what they are.
