The best in business revealed at the Cardiff Business Awards

The best in business has been revealed at the fourth annual Cardiff Business Awards today.

With no less than 56 organisations or individuals in contention for 16 prestigious awards, it’s no easy fete to be shortlisted in the business awards.

Since launching in 2015, the awards have become one of the highest profile and well-attended in the capital. Unique on the business awards calendar, these are the only awards to recognise those organisations and leaders who have made the greatest impact on the Cardiff, regional and wider UK economy over the last 12 months.

The winners of each category, as well as the Cardiff Business of the Year have been announced at the awards evening which were held today (Friday 15thJune) at City Hall, Cardiff and hosted once again by BBC journalist and presenter, Sian Lloyd.

This year’s highly commended businesses were the Big Learning Company, Heath Windows, The Studio Cardiff and Scott Jones from Illustrate Digital – sponsored by Cardiff Council.
