We are delighted to announce plans for a unique awards event to take place this year, Liverpool Chamber’s ‘Innovation in Business Awards’

The Innovation in Business Awards will be held on Thursday 18 November at the new Innside by Melia hotel in Liverpool city centre and a ‘Green Room’ experience will also allow guest businesses to share the experience live with their wider teams at a separate venue.

Join us at INNSiDE By Melia for the live awards inclusive of a welcome drink, a delicious three course meal, complimentary travel to our official after party in Alibi, and free entry with a welcome drink upon arrival to Alibi. This fantastic package is priced at £100 for members and £125 for non-members and is definitely not one to be missed!

Alternatively, join us at the ‘Green Room’ screening which will be hosted at DWNTWN in nearby Harrington Street where the live screening experience can be shared with wider team members. This package is inclusive of a welcome drink at DWNTWN, free entry to Alibi, and a further welcome drink at our official after show party in Alibi, all for the small price of £20 for members and £30 for non-members

The Awards

  • To reflect the unique nature of this year’s business landscape, Liverpool Chamber’s Awards for 2021 will celebrate the innovation which has driven the recovery of so many businesses with the “Liverpool Chamber Innovation in Business Awards”
  • Our ceremony itself will be a celebration of innovation, combining a traditional awards ceremony in a brand new City Centre venue with an innovative remote “Green Room” opportunity, allowing all members of a business’ team to socialise with colleagues, network and support their organisation
  • Within each category we will award a traditional award to an outstanding business in the field, alongside a supplementary special award for an innovator, who has recognised the challenges posed by the unprecedented situation we have found ourselves in, and has worked to turn this to the advantage of their business, team and wider community.
