It was a night of glitter, glamour and celebrations as leading Herefordshire businesses were honoured for their hard work and creativity.

The three Counties Hotel in Hereford hosted the prestigious third annual Herefordshire Business Awards on October 25.

More than 250 guests joined together to celebrate the talent and success of Herefordshire Businesses, organised by Herefordshire Means Business and sponsored by Hereford Business Solutions Centre.

The Awards evening was hosted by Matt Teale, award-winning presenter from ITV News Central Midlands.

He said “2019 was the third time I’ve hosted the Herefordshire Business Awards, and it was definitely the best yet.

“There were so many fantastic businesses represented from across a diverse range of sectors.

“It was great to hear about projects ranging from conservation in Africa and global cyber security to biodegradable crisp packets and the best local customer service.

“The talent and innovation on show in Herefordshire never ceases to impress and its fantastic to be able to help celebrate it.”

This year’s judges were Charlotte Thomas, Hereford Business Solutions Centre; Sharon Pocock, Kinder Pocock Accountants, and Chris Tipping, DM Lab.

After two full days, the finalists were announced, and judges were joined by the category sponsors to select the winners.
