IW CHAMBER BUSINESS AWARDS 2022 sponsored by WightFibre

Nominations announced!

The nominations have been announced for the Isle of Wight’s most prestigious awards. The IW Chamber Business Awards 2022, sponsored by WightFibre, will be presented at Cowes Yacht Haven on Friday May 6th.

The ceremony will be hosted by award-winning comic magicians Griffin and Jones; the awards will be presented for the first time since 2019.

In total 39 Isle of Wight businesses are nominated, with 52 nominations, in 15 categories. The awards submissions were judged by a panel of 20 impartial experts, largely off-Island, with some based internationally.

Tickets are on-sale now for the event, with an initial pre-sale for nominees only, reflecting the level of demand for the Island’s biggest awards ceremony.

IW Chamber Chief Executive Steven Holbrook comments:
What a vibrant and exciting shortlist! More than ever, our nominations reflect success across a really wide and diverse set of businesses. The standard of submissions this year was incredibly high and it is fabulous to see so many businesses engaging with our awards, across all sectors.

“Although 2021 was a far from typical year, the way that the Island’s business community adapted – and in many cases thrived – has been remarkable. The judges had some real headaches and getting nominated this year is an incredible success. For the businesses that didn’t make it, some will have missed out by the tiniest of margins against terrific competition. Every business that submitted an entry will receive feedback on request, once the awards have been presented.

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring the IW Chamber Business Awards back for 2022. Moving the awards to May, away from our traditional November slot will also change the feel of the evening, as we will all be arriving in daylight, in warmer weather. We’re very excited about our hosts Griffin and Jones who will be bringing the flavour of the Edinburgh Fringe to the ceremony; we will also welcome DJ Archie Easton, formerly of the Cuban Brothers, who will get the after-show party started in style. We’re all set for a spectacular show.”

WightFibre’s CEO John Irvine adds:
“WightFibre is proud to be the overall sponsor of the 2022 IW Chamber Business Awards – this prestigious night does so much to celebrate the success of the IW Chamber and the Island’s business community. WightFibre are thrilled to be part of it”.
