Biz 4 Biz Awards 2022

The biz4Biz Awards are impartial, independent awards that can be won by anyone involved in business in Hertfordshire. The aim of The biz4Biz Awards is to seek out examples of being the best at what we do. Many of your fellow Ambassadors have been nominated – I am sure they would appreciate your votes …

Online nomination and voting will take place from 17th October 2021 until the 28th February 2022. Nominees from the Top 20 will then be invited to attend a judging day. Judging will be done via Zoom – more details will follow shortly.

Companies can nominate themselves or be nominated by the general public.

The glittering biz4Biz Awards ceremony will take place on 8th July 2022 at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Welwyn, Hertfordshire, AL6 0JB and will be hosted by a soon to be revealed personality!

All nominees will have the opportunity to publicise on The biz4Biz Awards website with award winners having full on-going publicity following the awards ceremony.
