Stars of Business Awards - Sponsorship Opportunities

30th April, 2019

On Friday 21st June, business people across Penrith will come together to celebrate the achievements of the business community at The Roundthorn Country House Hotel for our annual Stars of Business Awards.  The Awards ceremony aims to recognise and reward the individual and company success of those in business in and around Penrith.


The awards would not be possible without our lovely supporters, and on that note, we are delighted to announce our first two sponsors for the evening. 

  For the first time, Penrith Business Parks - the brand created by the new Penrith Industrial BID - will be our Headline Sponsor and will present the coveted Business of the Year Award.  Chair of Penrith Industrial BID, Chris Staniowski said "One of our aims is to work collaboratively, and being the headline sponsor of the Stars of Business Awards will give us the opportunity to showcase our new brand, meet new contacts to help us work together with businesses across Penrith and better support our members We're really looking forward to seeing who will be nominated for the Business of the Year Award, and of course presenting it on the night."

The Retailer of the Year Award will again be sponsored by Penrith Business Improvement District.  Their Chair, Darren Broad, said "Penrith has a fantastic range of shops and sponsoring this award is a great opportunity to draw attention to the diversity of retailers in the town.
