This year the awards, organised by the Mid Ulster Mail, celebrated 10 years. We would like to welcome back Henry Brothers, our Principal Sponsor for this year’s awards.
The awards are aimed at recognising the talent, entrepreneurship and excellence that exists across the full range of business and commerce in the Mid Ulster area, paying homage to the long history of individual and collective industry upon which local towns have taken root and flourished and the companies which carry on that tradition today.
The Mid Ulster Mail would like to thank all the sponsors whose generous support has made the staging of this event possible including: Henry Bros, ASM Chartered Accountants, Bank of Ireland, Innotech Centre, South West College, Mid Ulster Council, Riada Resourcing and our venue partner Corick House Hotel & Spa.
