Innovation in Business Awards returns with new categories

New accolades reflect ‘changing face of enterprise innovation’

This year’s Innovation in Business Awards will feature a number of new categories including Talent Development and Experience Provider.

The annual awards, organised by Liverpool Chamber, take place at St George’s Hall on Thursday 26 October and will once again celebrate those businesses and individuals who have driven their organisation forward throughout the year.

There will also be new awards for Innovative Product or Service and Leadership Innovation, alongside more established categories such as Customer Excellence and International Business of the Year.

Nominations are open from Friday 2 June until Friday 30 June, after which time the shortlisted businesses will be subject to a public vote, closing on 25 August.

Paul Cherpeau, Chief Executive of Liverpool Chamber, said:

“The Innovation in Business Awards continue to grow year-on-year. St George’s Hall will be a wonderful venue for the 2023 Awards as we welcome more than 300 guests to celebrate the strengths and successes of our city region business community.

“This year we have introduced new categories which reflect the changing face of enterprise innovation and the ways in which businesses have modernised to capture and retain their customers and staff.

“We would encourage all business leaders, entrepreneurs, clients and suppliers to nominate their peers in the relevant categories and help us to shine a spotlight on the true innovators amongst us.”

The Innovation in Business Awards 2023 are headline sponsored by Blok ‘N’ Mesh. Tickets will soon be on sale and a limited number of sponsorship opportunities remain available.

Simon Worsley, CEO of Blok ‘N’ Mesh, said:

“The 2022 awards were a fantastic celebration of the energy and vitality of businesses in the Liverpool City Region.
