Leading figures in the business community will be out in force tonight for the Sheffield Business Awards.
The leading awards - which result from the merger of The Star’s annual awards and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce’s annual ceremony -are a showcase for the best the city has to offer.
TV presenter Gethin Jones is at the helm of the event at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.
Awards will be handed out in 15 categories that aim to acknowledge the range of talent Sheffield has to offer and the contribution made by diverse sectors to the city’s economy, from the traditional manufacturing base, customer service and international trade to new sectors such as digital communication and environmental and growth areas such as tourism, sport and leisure.
As well as individual categories, all the winners have a chance to be named Sheffield Business of the Year.
The headline sponsor for the glittering black tie event is Elevation Recruitment.
A win in the Sheffield awards will automatically secure a place in the Sheffield City Region Business Awards next summer.
