Time is running out for high-achieving companies in Northern Ireland to enter the 2015 Aer Lingus Viscount Awards, in association with Ulster Business.
The deadline for entry to this year's awards - which recognise and promote excellence, best practice and innovation in the Northern Irish business community, as well as those companies which have made significant progress in export markets - is this Thursday March 12th at 5pm.
Finalists will be invited to the awards lunch in the Members’ Dining Room at the House of Commons, Westminster on Tuesday 21st April, having been flown courtesy of Aer Lingus from George Best Belfast City Airport to London Heathrow.
Entries are still open across seven categories including; Most Innovative Company; Best Large Business; Best Medium Business; Best Small Business; Entrepreneur of the Year; Exporter of the Year and the Aer Lingus Viscount Award for Overall Excellence.
Irrespective of the individual categories, the key benchmark the judges will be looking for will be an innovative approach to the development of business opportunities in their sector.
Every business that enters the competition will be appraised by a seven strong panel of judges comprising Andrea Hunter, Aer Lingus Business Development Manager in Northern Ireland; David Elliott, Editor of Ulster Business; Jeremy Fitch, Executive Director, Business Solutions Group at Invest NI; Colin Walsh, Chairman of CBI in Northern Ireland; Richard Sherriff, Business Editor of the News Letter; Gary McDonald, Business Editor of the Irish News and Alan Taylor, Managing Partner at Arthur Cox.
