West London Business Awards 2019

The West London Business Annual Awards presentation ceremony and gala dinner is established as a key milestone in the annual calendar of the sub-region’s business community. Twenty-nine awards showcase business excellence in West London around five themes: ‘Sector leadership’, ‘Sustainable & responsible business’, ‘Economic growth’, ‘Corporate leadership’ and ‘Individual leadership’. The sixth West London Business Awards, which launched in July 2018, were the best yet! The awards help promote West London talent, entrepreneurship and drive to a national and global audience – sending a clear signal that we are very much ‘open for business’. This year more than 400 guests attended the awards ceremony and gala dinner at Twickenham Stadium. It was a fun-filled evening for attendees, and the event also supported local non-profits working to develop the next generation of talent; and showcase their skills. www.westlondon.com
