The Small Awards 2022

The Small Awards is a great event with small businesses, experts and luminaries coming together for a fantastic evening of awards and networking.

With 5.8 million small businesses in the UK, there are huge numbers of small businesses doing great things that may not be recognised by awards due to geography, scale or even awareness of the benefits such awards can bring.

The Small Awards will change that by reaching out to a massive small business base that its management team has built up over many years working in the sector.
