Date Posted:07/02/2018

The wait is over for the more than 100 entrants of this year’s Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards (MKBAA), as the finalists are revealed for MKBAA 2018.

Organised by the Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership (MKBLP), in association with full service marketing agency Interdirect and event management experts Evolution, MKBAA 2018 promises to be the best awards ceremony yet, having further improved on the successes of previous years.

Dr Philip Smith MBE, chair of MKBLP explains: “We have been really impressed by the calibre of entries into this year’s Business Achievement Awards and look forward to finding out more about each of the shortlisted business at the awards ceremony on 8 March.

“The awards, which provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate the talent that we have in our city, will once again be hosted by iconic British Sports Star, Gail Emms MBE.

“If you haven’t already done so, I would urge all finalists to book a table at MKBAA 2018, as we only have a few remaining. There are also limited opportunities for sponsorship within the programme left, so please do get in touch soon if you would like to take an advert.”
