Shortlist announced for Limerick Chamber Regional Business Awards 2018

 The Limerick Chamber Regional Business Awards 2018, sponsored by LIT, will be hotly contested by 21 companies across 7 categories. The winners of the categories, as well as the 2018 Overall Business of the Year and the President’s Award, will be announced at the Limerick Chamber President’s Dinner, on Friday 16th November in the Limerick Strand Hotel.

The awards are designed to recognise the hard work, commitment and innovative approach each company has showcased which has contributed to the growth of the area.

The judges will grant the Overall Business of the Year Award to an applicant they believe submitted an outstanding application and has made significant progress in the region.

Dee Ryan, Limerick Chamber Chief Executive said, “The standard of entry was so high that this year our Independent Judging Panel, chaired by former Entrepreneur of the Year, Anne Heraty, deliberated for more than 12 hours on reaching their decisions. It was nail-bitingly close for many categories with high-scoring entries narrowly missing out in a place in the final. All of the entrants can be very proud of their performances, the competition was stiff! “
