The 2016 East Midlands Chamber's Business Awards are open for entry.

These prestigious awards recognise, reward and celebrate business excellence across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. But just why do they stand out from other local awards?

Success in the EMC awards is like a badge of honour - and one that is widely-recognised. All competition finalists are entitled to display the supplied award logo on any of their own content and stationary. Enjoy the benefits of the association with such a prolific accolade and watch your business grow.

It's a win all round. Entering the EMC awards isn't just about the trophy at the end, there are subtler knock-on effects too. Even just a nomination can boost staff morale, which in turn increases business productivity. And the PR opportunities are endless.

Entering the awards is a quantifiable return on investment. The facts speak for themselves. After a year of winning an award companies typically enjoy a sales growth of 77% in comparison with their competitors. Can you afford not to enter?

Take it National. Select category winners of the EMC Awards will progress to the national British Chamber of Commerce Awards - meaning your local celebration could easily become a nationwide success.

Being a member of the Chamber is great for business-2-business meets. The awards are a chance to expand on these networking events. Award entrants will be able to meet with sponsors, Chamber Directors and fellow nominees, providing invaluable business introductions and growth opportunities.

Many awards come with huge entry fees, which can be off-putting to some businesses. The EMC Awards are completely free, meaning the competition is open to you no matter what your budget.

The EMC categories are vast. There's something for everyone - no matter what your business size or sector.

We're dedicated to helping you enter. Attend our free online webinar on 27 April to give yourself an edge over your competitors. With tips to impress the judges and examples from previous winning entries, we'll equip you with the tools needed to submit a shining application. Spaces are limited, so book your place here.
