Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber FBD Business Awards 2016

Excellence should be celebrated – whether it takes the form of great customer service, innovative business thinking or dedicated work in our community, committed people and businesses who take pride in their work make our community a better place to live and work.

Building on the reputation and success of previous years, our 2016 Business Awards will recognise achievement in 12 business and ambassador categories, with two overall Grand prizes sponsored by FBD Insurance worth €1000 each. This year we are also introducing a new People’s Choice Award which will give people a chance to nominate and vote for their favourite local business through social media.

This is an important opportunity to acknowledge and reward progressive local businesses for their dedication, vision and contribution to our community. We want businesses who feel that they excel in any category to nominate themselves, but we also hope that customers who have had great experiences with local service and products will take the time to get involved. We have a diverse range of categories with something to suit everyone and the nomination process is simple.
