There are so many reasons why entering awards can be great for you and your business. Here are just 11 of them.

The ABBBAs is an annual not-to-be-missed event held in the Bromley Borough, which attracts businesses large and small across the whole borough.

As an attendee, it’s an exciting event to be seen at and offers the opportunity to network with others, meet new people, see friends and colleagues and make new connections. You’ll enjoy an evening of amazing food, celebrations and entertainment. There is a real buzz in the air as we celebrate the Borough’s best businesses and individuals.

The evening commences with a pre-dinner drinks reception giving you the opportunity to settle in, network and catch up with others, followed by a scrumptious three-course meal and welcome speeches before the award celebrations commence.

Other highlights of the evening include entertainment that will have you on your feet dancing the night away.

At some point during the evening, we play a fun game (with a nominal fee to enter), to help raise funds for a local charity, giving you the chance to win a wonderful hamper filled with goodies from local businesses.

So, the question isn’t why should you attend The ABBBAs, it’s why shouldn’t you?
