The Winchester Business Excellence Awards draw closer still and we are pleased to announce an extended deadline for entries, which is now Friday 3rd March 2017.

The much loved awards, which are now in their 15th year of excellence, are a key date in the Winchester Business calendar and we are delighted to welcome Denplan back on board as principle sponsor for 2017. Denplan are key players in the Winchester economy and have sponsored the awards for a number of years; their ongoing support means that we can provide this opportunity to Winchester businesses.

This year, winners from each of the seven categories will be automatically entered in to the prestigious Denplan Business of the Year Award. This standalone category is the ‘icing on the cake’ for Winchester businesses and will be presented to a business which can:

  • demonstrate sound financial and business planning
  • demonstrate success in overcoming challenges to drive forward its business plan
  • demonstrate a clear relationship between its marketing strategy and the development of the business
  • demonstrate a clear plan for future growth


This coveted accolade will provide the winning business with great PR opportunities, as well as boosting staff morale and acknowledging the achievements that the company has made.


The awards evening will take place on Friday 3rd June 2017 at the Winchester Guildhall, where guests can enjoy a three course meal and guest speaker at the sparkling black-tie event.
