2019 Awards will launch in January – details to be announced soon!

The second Southwark Business Excellence Awards are set to launch at a sparkling event at the end of January – details will be announced shortly.

The inaugural programme in 2018, marking the successes and achievements of the borough’s ambitious and hardworking firms, was a huge success attracting 171 submissions from 122 different companies.


The glittering finale, the black-tie Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony at the London Hilton Bankside Hotel, was enjoyed by 450 people. Fourteen category trophies were awarded on the evening as well as the premier prize, Southwark Business of the Year. The event also raised £4,000 for charity.

Following on this success, the 2019 programme promises to be even bigger and better, with categories to suit every type and size of business in the borough, from start-ups to SMEs and large international companies.

The sparkling launch will be held in late January at a prestigious venue – more details to be announced shortly.
