Welcome to the Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster Awards 2016

Tonight is a celebration of the best of our members’ achievements – the BECBC Business Awards showcase the variety of companies in this area, the breadth (and the depth) of their expertise and their appetite for success.

The shortlists include examples of collaboration between members, supply chain working and partnerships as well as individual company successes. Most of those involved in tonight’s celebration will be familiar names but not all of them and I hope that new connections will be forged that could be the basis of BECBC Business Award success in the future!

There will be a lot of thank yous during this evening but I’d like to add my own as they go to the heart of the event. Tonight is only possible because of our sponsors and because of every member company that took the time to enter these Awards. A huge thank you to all of you. Enjoy your evening and the very best of luck to everyone.

Ivan Baldwin
Chairman of Britain's Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC)
