Perthshire Chamber chief executive Vicki Unite said:
“2020 brought unprecedented challenges, along with new opportunities and different ways of working. Every business was affected, and the Perthshire business community’s resilience and creativity were presented in a variety of ways.
“We wanted to host our annual awards but take into account the current climate and guidelines, so numbers on the night will be limited and we have concentrated our award categories into ten main areas – all for one year only - to recognise and reward those operating in the recent and current environment.
“The past 18 months have been so difficult for our businesses and it is right that we use our landmark event to award and honour those individuals and businesses that went above and beyond expectation to thrive in the face of adversity.”
Among the categories is one highlighting Best COVID Response and Reinvention, for businesses that have undertaken a transformative response – operationally, commercially or strategically – to the pandemic in order to survive and thrive.
And Community Heroes (groups and individuals) during the pandemic will also be honoured.
Among the other categories are Apprentice of the Year, Most Promising New Business, Best Use of Social Media, Outstanding Young Person, Excellence in Customer Service, and Outstanding Achievement by both a group and an individual.
Tickets for the event - with fizz on arrival, a delicious three course meal with coffee, hosted awards ceremony, fundraiser and live music with Groove Culture into the wee small hours are available:
