West London Business Awards 2020 shortlist announced!

The judging panel of the West London Business Awards 2020 met on Tuesday 19 November and today announces its shortlist.   The Awards, now in their seventh year, recognise the outstanding achievements of organisations and individuals across five themes: SME sector leadership, sustainable & responsible business, economic growth, corporate leadership, and individual leadership. The winners in each category, as well as the overall West London Company of the Year 202o, will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony and dinner on Friday 7 February 2020 at Twickenham Stadium. 

Shortlisted companies range from globally reknowned brands Cisco, Ibis and Kerry Foods to exporters such as Techniche and Russell Finex, as well as fast growing innovators VeeLoop and THIS – plant-based food for meat lovers.

Andrew Dakers, CEO of West London Business said:

“We have seen a surge in entries this year which shows the sustained energy and dynamism in the West London economic powerhouse. Our judges were particularly pleased to see the continued embedding of environmental and social sustainability into the practices of so many of the entries – critically important in an era where we must rise to the challenges of climate change and poverty in our backyard as pressure on food banks grows. Awards night promises to be an exciting occasion with plenty of surprises to be had as always.”

The gala dinner at Twickenham Stadium is open to all – you don’t have to be on the shortlist to enjoy an amazing night of networking with West London’s most successful companies!

Tickets start at just £108+VAT
