Brum Celebrates the Best in Business


400 business leaders packed into Edgbaston Stadium on November 9th to celebrate the inaugural City of Birmingham Business Awards, hosted by Downtown Birmingham, and sponsored by Lifestyle Partnerships.
The gala awards dinner, presented by Ed James, rewarded some of the best businesses and business leaders in the City Region.

The big winners on the evening included Paul Cadman, Michele Wilby and Bart Dalton who won the Man of the Year, Woman of the Year and Business Personality of the Year respectively.

Best Hotel went to Hotel du Vin. Pictured are General Manager, Tony Elvin and Sales Manager, Jason Simpson.

The biggest prize on the evening went to Argent LLP who won the Business of the Year award.

Frank McKenna CEO of Downtown in Business commented: “It has been fantastic to reward all of the amazing businesses in the Birmingham City Region. The calibre of businesses in the city made a nomination for these awards an achievement in itself. I would like to congratulate all of the winners and wish all the nominees best of luck for next year when the COBBA’s will return.”

Celebrations went on long into the night, with a terrific set from Happy Monday’s icon Rowetta, followed by an aftershow party at the Malmaison Hotel.
