The best of Sheffield business was celebrated last night at the Sheffield Business Awards 2022.
The event, held at Peddler Warehouse in Neepsend, saw hundreds of people gather together to honour the companies and individuals making waves in the Sheffield business scene.
The winners of all 15 award categories were announced at the glittering ceremony, hosted by Sheffield-born comedian Tom Wrigglesworth, and catered by Michelin Guide restaurant Jöro.
This year’s event focused on inclusivity and diversity, offering three new categories in a bid to reach as many businesses as possible. These included the Cultural Vibrancy award, the High Street Hero award and the Best Entrepreneur award.
The Sheffield Business Awards are run by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and unLTD Business magazine, with this year’s event sponsored by CMS.
There were more than 150 applications this year, with each category whittled down to a shortlist of the three best entries and the overall winners announced on the night.
The awards were judged by a number of high-profile businesspeople and experts from across the region, who said the quality of applications was extremely high.
Louisa Harrison-Walker, chief executive of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, said: “To all those innovative businesses shortlisted, and to all those who raised a wining award on the night… a big congratulations!
“We were delighted to be there celebrating with you on such a fantastic occasion. You are part of what helps us towards making our city the best place in the UK to start, grow and run a successful and sustainable business.”
Phil Turner, publisher of unLTD, added: “A huge well done to everyone shortlisted and of course, our fantastic winners. It was a wonderful evening celebrating the very best of Sheffield business. We would just like to extend our thanks to all the judges who took so much time out of their busy schedules to read through the applications, and our amazing sponsors. Without you this night wouldn’t have been possible!”
