Isle Of Wight Chamber Business Awards Announced For 2024

The nominations have been published for the Isle of Wight Chamber Business Awards 2024.

Sponsored by WightFibre, the event will be presented at Cowes Yacht Haven on Friday May 10.

The ceremony will be hosted by double Olympic gold medal winning sailor Shirley Robertson OBE, who has been an Island resident for more than 20 years, and is a highly experienced international TV presenter and event host.

This year, 42 businesses feature in the shortlist, with 54 nominations in 16 categories.

The shortlist was produced by a panel of independent judges, some of who are on the Island, with most on the mainland or even internationally based.

Shirley Robertson OBE said:

“I’ve lived on the Island for more than two decades and am still constantly impressed by the flair and ingenuity of the Island’s business community.

“I’m thrilled to be helping you all celebrate, and to shine a light on the many successful and inspirational businesses that call the Island their home.

"I’m so excited to be part of this highly prestigious evening. It’s going to be a great night and I can’t wait!”

WightFibre CEO, John Irvine, added:

"This is the third year of our sponsorship and the awards get bigger and better every year.”
