KEiBA 2021 – Kent’s leading business awards are back!

KEiBA 2021 – Kent’s leading business awards are back!

Kent’s leading business awards are back and we are delighted to be sponsoring the Entrepreneur of the year category!

After 2020’s gala event was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are so excited that this year will see the return of the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA), including a special one-off award for ‘Outstanding COVID-19 Business Response’.

Organised by Kent County Council and the KM Media Group, the county’s premier business awards are free to enter and all judgingwill take place in a COVID-secure way. With more categories available than ever before, there are even more opportunities to win and put your business front and centre of the Kent business community.

As well as the multichannel exposure provided by the KM Group previous winners have reported that entering the competition helped their business:

  • Increase sales

  • Boost team morale

  • Increase brand awareness

We’ve been supporting KEiBA for 6 years because we are passionate about helping ambitious business owners realise their dreams and achieve their goals. Learn more about The Creaseys Way here.

The ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ award focusses on stand-out innovative individuals who have achieved commercial success and have clear goals for their business – something that should be celebrated even more this year with the extra pressure that COVID-19 has placed on all businesses. The ‘Outstanding COVID-19 Business Response’ award, a one-off for 2021, will recognise where a business has diversified to survive in the face of the pandemic or excelled in its support to the UK’s COVID-19 response.

While there will be no actual awards night, a dedicated printed supplement will be launched in October, revealing the winners. This will feature in all KM Media titles as well as on KentOnline, kmfm and KMTV, providing winners with valuable multi-channel exposure and recognition. And of course, winners will still receive the coveted trophies and certificates as testaments to their success. These awards are exclusively for Kent businesses and have a whole host of benefits to those lucky enough to win. KEiBA winners from previous years have spoken of increased brand awareness, improved staff morale and enhanced sales as a result of winning one of the prestigious awards.

With everything that has happened over the last 12 months, every business would surely benefit from this kind of positive impact. If you want a chance to experience this boost for your business, you can enter online from 19th May 2021 but be quick; the deadline is 30th June 2021.
