After a hugely successful year, the Merton Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the launch of its eighth Merton Best Business Awards.

Over 150 businesses and entrepreneurs across the borough entered last year, and the response to the public voting category was phenomenal, illustrating that businesses are still thriving in the local community despite economic uncertainty.

Held at the prestigious All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, the 2019 Merton Best Business Awards saw leading community figures come together at a glittering ceremony, where Gina Conway and her team picked up the Best Overall Winner award.

In 2020, The Merton Best Business Awards are set to be even bigger and better, with the launch night being held at The New Wimbledon Theatre on the 17 March. The event will see sponsors, judges and previous winners coming together for a special evening of networking and reflection. As well as meeting representatives from new sponsors we will hear from long-standing headline sponsors WSM Business Advisory and London Borough of Merton as well as hosts New Wimbledon Theatre. New awards categories will also be revealed.

Promoting excellence, innovation and best practice, the launch will see guests being inspired by past champions, who will disclose how winning the awards has been a positive experience for them and their businesses.

Diana Sterck CEO of Merton Chamber of Commerce said: “I love the Merton Best Business Awards for a number of reasons. Firstly, they celebrate the amazing talent of business; secondly, they are a great way for staff to gain recognition for all their hard work; and thirdly, they bring together our sponsors with a whole new network of applicants. The Merton Best Business Awards really celebrates businesses in these difficult and challenging times and offer a way to differentiate business from competitors. We can’t wait to see who enters and wish all the very best of luck!”
