The Winchester Business Excellence Awards (WBEA) recognise the achievements of local businesses and rewards them for their commitment to excellence.

Founded by partners Winchester Business Improvement District (BID), Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and the Hampshire Chronicle, there are a number of award categories to enter, with each category winner automatically entered to the prestigious Simplyhealth Business of the Year Award.

Each category winner will receive a specially commissioned trophy, a framed certificate, a full page advert in the Hampshire Chronicle, air-time on The Breeze FM and valuable public profile for the shortlisted companies and winners at the glittering awards ceremony, which is held in the Guildhall Winchester in June.

The Business Excellence Awards is renowned across the district as a highly prestigious event and if you are in business in the Winchester area it is a very worthwhile investment of your time to be involved.”
Kit Finney, Winchester Chairman, Judging Panel and Director of JCF Financial.
