About Skipton Business Awards
The idea to launch the awards came from a group of Skipton Chamber of Trade & Commerce members who wanted to celebrate the businesses of Skipton and the BD23 area. For many years the town had been without an Awards/recognition scheme and in way of celebrating 120 years of the Chamber, one of the oldest established, continually operating, organisations of its kind with an aim of championing the businesses of the area, the Awards felt like a wonderful opportunity.
With backing from Skipton BID the inaugural year was launched in October 2016. There was every chance that it might have been a one-time celebration of those 120 years, however, thanks to the financial backing, support and willingness to continue of the business community, the awards move from strength to strength. Who will be the next 'Best Business of the Year'?
Thank you to our Headline and Category sponsors the Awards can be held each year. A number of our sponsors have been involved since the October launch in 2016 and each year companies are offered the opportunity to express an interest in sponsoring a category. In 2018 to offer a fair chance to all we held a ballot at our launch event. If you would like to be part of future ballots for sponsorship please contact us via the link below. Thank you
