Seventa Events is paying tribute to the successful finalists as the drinks reception sponsor at this year’s Dorset Business Awards, organised by the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

No stranger to the spotlight, Seventa Events won Team of the Year at the 2016 Dorset Business Awards, and organise some of the most innovative and creative events in Dorset and beyond. This winter sees them taking the reins with a new spin on Bournemouth’s annual Christmas market.

In association with the Daily Echo and Dorset Echo, and backed by the south’s leading radio station Wave 105, the Gala Dinner Awards ceremony will take place at the Bournemouth International Centre on Thursday, November 23.

Simon Brooks, managing director of Seventa Events, said: ‘‘The Dorset Business Awards are a great platform to put yourselves on the map. Anybody that is in business deserves recognition and respect for the monumental amount of work, time and effort that goes into running a business. Thousands of people follow the awards and to see your team up on the big screen on the night, is an incredible feeling.

‘‘We’re really looking forward to being part of what will be a special night for everyone attending. The drinks reception is a great opportunity to share the Seventa Events experience with guests, and showcase our creativity with a few surprises.’’

Stuart Dixon, head of marketing and communications and organiser of the Awards from Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, added: ‘‘Given Seventa’s award-winning history at the Dorset Business Awards, it’s wonderful to have them onboard as drinks reception sponsor. With their unique expertise, the Gala Dinner Awards are sure to get off to a great start as we celebrate the south’s business achievements.’’
