Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce



The Bournemouth Business Awards focus on the quality and range of local businesses giving them a chance to gain recognition and promote themselves.

The awards are not an excuse for a party. The focus is on the entries and not the event. It’s a chance for local businesses to network while the awards presentation will also be live-streamed to reach the maximum number of people.

Tuesday, 25th January 2022 will see the official launch of the awards and entries open. Entry is free and businesses can enter as many categories as they wish. People can also nominate businesses they believe deserve an award. Please read the entry guidelines before entering or nominating.

To enter the awards, simply visit the Bournemouth Business Awards website.


These are the categories, but If there are others you would like considered, please let the team know by emailing
