The  Belfast Chamber Awards, now in their 7th year and sponsored once again by Bank of Ireland, have become the city’s premier celebration of business excellence in the city and will take place on Friday 21 October in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Shaw’s Bridge.

Across 22 different categories ranging from Best New Business, Business Leader of the Year and the Best Company to Work For to new categories like Best International Business, Excellence in Contribution to the Community and the Diversity and Inclusion Award, the event will showcase the very best of Belfast business in what has been a challenging year.

Commenting on the launch of the Awards, Belfast Chamber President Michael Stewart said, “Belfast Chamber is absolutely delighted to be able to launch the 2022 Belfast Chamber Business Awards which are proudly sponsored by Bank of Ireland.

In spite of the challenges we have come through and the new ones that we face, Belfast Chamber believes that a bright future lies ahead for our city’s economy.  I know that the energy, the innovation and the resilience that business leaders in Belfast always exhibit will help propel Belfast to even bigger and better things. Sometimes in this part of the world, we don’t take the time to acknowledge just how amazing and exceptional we are.  We shouldn’t be shy to take a second and say Belfast is brilliant and its businesses are outstanding.  That’s what the 2022 Belfast Chamber Business Awards is all about.

Our 2022 Belfast Chamber Business Awards will celebrate the success of those businesses and their team members who are at the top of their game.  Belfast Chamber is immensely proud of the businesses in our city who are always developing new ideas, making a contribution to the community in which they operate and nurturing new talent.  Those are the kind of qualities that makes businesses in Belfast stand out and the Belfast Chamber Business awards will recognise exactly that.

One award that may be of note to members is the International Trade & Export Award.
