Small businesses and entrepreneurs are to come together to celebrate their achievements at the ninth annual Liverpool Lifestyle Awards on 3 March.
With six weeks to go, more than 10,000 votes have already been cast in three weeks as people vote for their winners.
280 people are expected to attend on the night, which is hosted by Radio City DJ and socialite Claire Simmo, who says: “Having attended a number of Liverpool Lifestyle Awards over the years, I was not only thrilled to be nominated for the second year running, but also honoured to be asked by Amanda to host this prestigious event. I presented the FAB Awards last June and it was a wonderful evening and I am excited that she has asked me to host this special night celebrating local business people and talent within the North West. No matter how big or small they are, this is their chance to shine.”
There are 26 awards up for grabs on the night, Categories include Best Private Venue Hire, Best Family Friendly Restaurant, Most Innovative Professional, Best Charity Fundraiser, Best Legal Services, Best Networker, Best New Business, Best Property Services and new for 2018, Best Mindful Business.
The Liverpool Lifestyle Awards is one of the most prestigious networking events of the year attended by almost 300 people, mostly business directors. With Liverpool being one of the top UK spots for independent start up businesses and entrepreneurs it is no wonder that the event is so popular. The night kicks off with a drinks reception courtesy of Liverpool Gin, followed by a three course dinner. Guests will also be treated to entertainment from Samba dancers, MD Productions, Courtenay Gill and Chris Andre will finish off the night with a live performance guaranteed to get everyone bouncing on the dance floor.
Event director Amanda Moss says: “ It presents an excellent opportunity for people to come together to celebrate their success. We spend so time engrossed in our work it is actually nice to put the laptop down, get dressed up and have a fabulous night out to celebrate everyone’s achievements. We can get lost in ourselves working so hard and it’s important to reconnect with other people.
“I am especially proud of the Liverpool Lifestyle Awards as they recognise the achievements of the small businesses normally disregarded by business events, those people propping up the local economy with their shops and salons and restaurants on the small parades of shops and in the suburbs outside the city centre who deserve to be applauded for their success. It’s a wonderful way to bring everyone together. ”
Voting closes on 16 February with the winners announced on the night. For more details visit www.liverpoollifestyleawards.co.uk
