The Adur and Worthing Business Awards Adur & Worthing Business Awards 2020 – Cancelled

It is with great disappointment that the Organising Committee have taken the decision to cancel the Adur & Worthing Business Awards for 2020 due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

As we’re sure you’re all aware, whilst lockdown restrictions might be relaxed over the coming weeks, the annual business awards is an event that requires a great deal of forward planning and effort.  With so much uncertainty surrounding the situation, we felt it was impossible to continue with the planning and delivery of the 2020 event.  Additionally, we are aware that businesses will be feeling the negative effects of the pandemic and they will need to prioritise their focus accordingly.

We very much hope that Adur & Worthing businesses will come back bigger, better and stronger for 2021.  In the meantime, we send you all our best wishes during this trying time and look forward to working with you again next year.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we hope to update you soon with news of a new date for the 2021 event.

‘The Awards organised by Businesses for the Businesses’

The new organising committee of the Adur & Worthing Business Awards are delighted to confirm that the awards will now be independently run and organised under the umbrella of the Adur & Worthing Business Partnership (AWBP) as a ‘Not-for-Profit’ business model.  James Stoner, a member of the existing committee and category sponsor recently commented “Going forward the awards are to be organised by the businesses for the businesses and by working together with the AWBP, we look forward to the continued success of one of the most prestigious events in the local business calendar”. 

The AWBP plays a pivotal role as an independent partnership working on behalf of the Adur and Worthing business community and Adur and Worthing Councils.  The AWBP is seen as the ideal vehicle to take the Adur & Worthing Business Awards forward, securing the longevity and the future success of the event.  Peter Webb MBE a member of the AWBP commented, “In recent years the Business Awards have gone from strength to strength and looking ahead, our main priority is to continue this momentum.  I believe now it is the right time to move the awards forward and develop a not-for-profit model under the stewardship of the AWBP”
