Value the awards bring to the county

Essex continually ranks highly in UK business charts and standard of living surveys, encapsulated when Chelmsford was placed top among 12 locations in the East of England in the Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Live in the UK’ guide in 2018 and was listed again in 2019 as one of the best places to live in the East.

The awards showcase businesses inside the county and allows other prospective businesses to consider expanding or establishing a base within Essex. Furthermore, it also strengthens the willingness and belief of existing businesses within Essex to emulate the achievements of the best the county has to offer.

The BEAE aims to celebrate the best businesses in Essex, highlighting the achievements attained by the talented companies and their employees. Judging to shortlist the finalists begins on Friday 5th July and ends on Friday 2nd August 2019. The award ceremony will be held on Thursday 26th September 2019 at Five Lakes Resort in Essex and hosted by TV personality Denise Van Outen and TV comedian Mark Dolan.

Our involvement with the awards last year has fuelled our enthusiasm for the event and we look forward to playing an even greater role in 2019 to celebrate the very best of Essex business.
