The Red Rose Awards will once again recognise outstanding business acumen across the county.

With the closing date for entries being midnight on Friday, January 13th, 2017, the 2017 edition - with categories relevant to every business in the county - follows last year's event at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens which was organised by Lancashire Business View magazine and which attracted more than 1,100 of the county’s top business people.

Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View, said: “First and foremost, the Red Rose Awards are about giving Lancashire business the opportunity to show how great they are and how deep the county’s commercial excellence runs.

“We are giving business the chance to shout about what they do and why they are the best at it – and we hope they’ll grasp that opportunity with both hands by entering. We hope that businesses will take some time to reflect on their achievements and enter the awards.
