Belfast Business Awards 2017: Business ‘Oscars’ in Titanic a great success!
We had a great start to the weekend, when we attended the Belfast Business Awards in the amazing Titanic museum on Friday 26th May 2017.
It was an event we had been excitedly anticipating for months, since ISL Waste Management were sponsoring the Best Eatery and Coffee Shop categories. With many amazing entries and fantastic hospitality businesses represented, we were looking forward to hearing who would finish as best of the bunch.
The annual event, which has been dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the business world, was organised once again by Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce and presided over by broadcasting stars Sarah Travers and Pete Snodden.
