Roe Valley Business Awards - nominate now

With over 1,000 Roe Valley Business Award brochures and information packs being sent to local businesses later this week and with the business awards website now live the general public and businesses from all over Limavady Borough are being encouraged to get nominating for the 2011 Roe Valley Business Awards.

The deadline for completed nomination forms is 4pm on 3rd November and can be made online at or by completing the nomination form enclosed with the Information Packs posted later this week. The Roe Valley Business Awards will culminate in a Gala Event on the evening of Saturday 19th November in Radisson Blu Roe Park Resort, hosted by Apprentice Finalist Jim Eastwood. Awards Organiser Marc McGerty from Accelerate Business Support Agency said “immediately after the nomination window closes on the 3rd November the Judging Panel will shortlist nominees and appoint the finalists in each category. Finalists will be notified on Monday, 7th November. Every business nominated will receive a ‘Business Awards 2011 Nominee’ certificate which should be displayed proudly in their business premises.”

“Once finalists of each category are confirmed we will appoint each business an adviser who will help with the administration of the judging process. These advisers will meet the finalists to gather the necessary information to assist the Judging Panel with the selection of the winners. We have appointed a team of 12 advisers to help with the judging process, and they will meet with all finalists in early October reporting back to the Judging Panel on the 17th and 18th November who will then pick the winners!”
