Dorset’s biggest celebration of business achievement is officially launched on the 7th June 2018

This year’s Dorset Business Awards  was launched at one of Dorset’s most beautiful locations St Giles House, Wimborne St Giles and was the perfect opportunity for potential entrants to learn key information about this year’s categories from sponsors and the Dorset Chamber team while networking in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The event was proudly sponsored by  Wessex Internet, the leading independent superfast broadband provider to Dorset, Wiltshire and South Somerset.  Our guests enjoyed world-class catering with delicious canapes and drinks courtesy of Beales Gourmet.

The awards serve to represent Dorset businesses on a national stage and to attract investment and talent into our great county. It showcases our innovation, leadership and togetherness while inspiring and honouring the people at the heart of our business community. It is an awards programme with purpose and one that Dorset Chamber extremely proud to organise.

Entering the awards will have a positive effect on your business, it is a great exercise of evaluation and team building while being shortlisted as a finalist or winning is a massive boost to your PR and the overall morale of your organisation. It will earn you fantastic positioning within your sector and marketplace for years to come. Entering the awards is open to all businesses within Dorset and we invite both non-members and members of Dorset Chamber to consider entering. Last year was a record year for entries and the standard of entries made it extremely difficult for the judges to select the eventual winners. The awards are totally inclusive, however long you have been trading or the size of your business.

Due to the popularity and exclusive nature of this event, we can only offer one place per invitation. Please contact us by Thursday 31st May at 2pm to reserve your place. Places are limited so we will fill our guest list on a first come first serve basis.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to the team on 01202 714800 who will be happy to help.


Lord Shaftesbury “We are looking forward to hosting the launch of the 2018 Dorset Business Awards at St.Giles House. Over the past 7 years we have been restoring this beautiful old Dorset home, to bring it back into use as a venue for a range of different activities such as weddings, concerts and corporate events. During the restoration we have focused a lot of energy on preserving the magic of the building whilst also bringing in our own individual style. We look forward to sharing it with you for this launch, along with our partner, Beales Gourmet. We feel lucky to be part of a vibrant business community here in Dorset and all the opportunities that living here brings.”
