The countdown to the Niche Magazine Business Awards is already upon the Cross Productions office after having secured the headline sponsorship of locally influential company Paradigm Wills and Legal Services.
Inspired by Paradigm Wills and Legal Services’ impact on local businesses, the team behind the Niche Magazine Business Awards has decided to take a fresh approach in organising the event for next year.
Cross Productions has been running the awards for four years and, going into its fifth year in 2019, is planning exciting changes.
The team has evolved the awarding categories in order to really encompass all kinds of companies within the county. The public is now able to vote for establishments based on a new range of capabilities including Employer of the Year, Best Family Business, and Digital Business of the Year.
There will also be surprises with new forms of entertainment throughout the night, and as ever, a unique theme which is set to be the most talked about in 2019.
On sponsoring the event, Bhavin said: “We’ve helped a lot of company owners to offer benefits to them and their staff and we thought it was about time to do that on a bigger scale. We want to be known as a local business that supports other local businesses to grow and sponsoring the Niche Business Awards is the best platform to get that message out.”
Satwinder added: “We see how great the positive effects of connecting with other local organisations can be – there is strength in that. We work closely with Niche Magazine and Cross Productions and thought it was only fitting to sponsor the awards as it epitomises everything we stand for at Paradigm Wills and Legal Services.”
The public can now nominate their favourite businesses in Leicestershire putting them in for a chance to win a prestigious local award in one or more of 15 categories. Nominations opened on Thursday November 21, 2018 and will close on Tuesday April 30, 2019.
