Antrim Town Business Awards Winners

05 March 2018

The excitement was building as local businesses gathered at The Old Courthouse in Antrim Town Centre last Friday (2 March) to hear the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Hamill, announce the results of Antrim Town Business Awards 2018.

Firstly, businesses had to self-nominate and then receive public votes through an online vote. The three businesses who received the highest numbers of votes in each category were then judged by the independent panel for outstanding performance and excellence, in their qualifying category and against specific criteria.

There was a great atmosphere as nominees enjoyed networking after the awards ceremony over a hot buffet.   Everyone is now looking forward to next year!
