Back for a second year, the awards will be split across 12 different categories including three new additions – Business and Social Responsibility, Young Entrepreneur or Businessperson and Innovation and Use of Digital Media.

The awards, which are free to enter, will be presented at a prestigious black-tie dinner at Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club on July 14 and Chamber president Mark Bass hopes as many companies as possible will enter.

“It’s an ideal opportunity to be independently assessed and to put yourself up against your peers,” he said.

“It’s also a fantastic opportunity to showcase yourself and highlight your successes and show to others that yours is a business that achieves something.

“In the past award winners from the borough have gone on to win bigger regional awards, so this is a great platform.”

The Party Box, in Becontree Avenue, Dagenham, dominated last year’s awards winning Business of the Year and Best Sole Trader Micro Business while boss Donna Pike took home Business Person of the Year.

All entries for this year’s awards must be in by 5pm on Friday, April 29.
