Friday 1st September @ Peebles Hydro

Taking place at Peebles Hydro on September 1st 2023, the black tie event celebrates the accomplishments and resilience of the Borders Business Community.

After the success of last year, the event has added a range of new categories ensuring it is even more accessible to all types of business from across the region. From Sole Trader of the Year to Net Zero Business of the Year, the awards present an opportunity unlike any other in the Borders.

Trevor Jackson Interim Chair said, “We are delighted to be launching the Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards. The event really is the jewel in the Chamber’s crown and with so much growth in the Borders business community, it is essential we highlight and celebrate this. Thanks to all our sponsors and team who work behind the scenes to make it a success. We encourage businesses to put themselves forward and showcase their achievements to a wider audience.”
