Celebrating the best of Medway businesses

The most prestigious awards ceremony in Kent, celebrating the achievements of both large and small businesses based in Medway.  The 2024 awards are now open!

Why enter?

Free to enter

For over 35 years we have been recognising and rewarding Medway’s finest businesses. These Awards are free to enter and each finalist will receive 4 complimentary tickets to attend a glittering awards evening to be held in November 2023.

Fair Judging

Every entry we receive is treated with integrity and fairness. Each submission will be reviewed by not less than three judges before a final sift is held to decide on businesses to be shortlisted.  Each finalist will be visited in person by our judges.

Business growth

Shouting about your achievements, boosting staff morale, recognition of your expertise, increased sales opportunities and benchmarking are just some of the reasons why entering the Medway Business Awards is good for your business.

About Us

The Medway business community has grown phenomenally since these awards were launched over 35 years ago. They were aimed at giving the area back some of the self-esteem lost at the closure of the naval dockyard and other manufacturing industries. 

Today the awards are a celebration of what regeneration means. Take a look at the sponsors, a number of whom have relocated to the area, or grown since the awards started.

Medway now has a magnificent university campus in partnership with four universities of which two are sponsors for these awards. Additionally there is a proactive vocational college delivering much needed skills to the area. The business parks are thriving. Diversity and new technologies abound. Many small companies trade in the global market.
