About the awards



The GloucestershireLive Business Awards, brought to you by Reach plc | GloucestershireLive and BusinessLive – in partnership with returning headline sponsors, Randall & Payne – are live for their 24th year and we’re honoured to be continuing to recognise the resilience and achievements of our business community. The GloucestershireLive Business Awards are an annual celebration of successful and innovative businesses doing fantastic things right here in Gloucestershire.

The awards evening takes place on Thursday 13th October and brings together business people to celebrate and recognise the local talent that makes Gloucestershire such a great place to live, work and do business. The evening will start with a sparkling drinks reception, followed by dinner and then the reveal of this year’s winners. Following the awards it is time to network, celebrate and party the night away!

Due to the long running heritage of the GloucestershireLive Business Awards, these prestigious awards offer a number of complimentary benefits to you and your business including:

  • Free to attend networking events | Launch Breakfast, Finalists Champagne Reception, Winners Celebration Dinner
  • Opportunity to network and be celebrated amongst over 500 guests at the annual Black Tie gala awards ceremony in October at the iconic Cheltenham Racecourse
  • Complimentary coverage of you and your business on BusinessLive, GloucestershireLive and in print in the Gloucestershire Echo with finalists and winners articles showcasing your business and entry
  • Winners case study on your business and success at the awards featured on Randall & Payne and BusinessLive

As we continue to adapt and enhance the GloucestershireLive Business Awards, we are also delighted to introduce two new categories for 2022, our Sustainability Award and Charity of the Year Award recognising more areas of Gloucestershire than ever.

These awards remind us that Gloucestershire is a great place to live, work and do business. They toast success, celebrate achievement and highlight successful and innovative businesses doing great things right here in the region.

We are delighted to be working with the Hollie Gazzard Trust as our charity partner for 2022.

The Hollie Gazzard Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner. Set up by parents Nick and Mandy, along with sister Chloe, the charity helps reduce domestic violence through creating and delivering programmes on domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships to schools and colleges.

The ultimate aim of the Trust is to positively change the lives of young people through partnerships in communities, as well as working alongside other charities and professional agencies.
