The County Kildare Chamber Business Awards powered by EirGrid has officially launched, with applications now open for members of County Kildare Chamber to apply.

The Business Awards celebrate the best in business in Kildare and is open for start up business, emerging businesses, SME’s right up to our large indigenous and multi nationals in the county. Robust judging by 6 independent judges will lead to the finalists and the eventual winners being announced on the 17th November in The Killashee Hotel where 500 key stakeholders and companies will celebrate the best in business in 2023.

Allan Shine, CEO of County Kildare Chamber said:

“This year we expect a record number of entries. Coupled with the extensive profile that finalists receive across multiple print and digital platforms, our Business Awards also gives our members the opportunity to challenge themselves through the various categories on offer to nominate for. Keith Barry returns as MC, Pink Champagne will be on hand for the entertainment and already companies have booked in for what promises to be a great night as we celebrate the best of business in Kildare”.

Sinéad Dooley, Head of Public Engagement, EirGrid said:

”We are proud to once again support the County Kildare Chamber Business Awards, as primary sponsors for 2023.

While working to progress the Kildare-Meath Grid Upgrade, ensuring a sustainable and secure electricity future for the region, EirGrid has engaged closely with Kildare’s businesses, industries and communities at large.

Through our ongoing association with the County Kildare Chamber, we have seen first-hand the pioneering ambition of local businesses, all of whom are themselves working towards a bright outlook for their local economy, their employees and their families.

We are proud to support their endeavours, and hope that in strengthening the local electricity infrastructure with a new high-capacity underground cable, EirGrid can provide a platform for Kildare’s continued growth, ensuring businesses and industry have power when and where they need it.

We look forward to recognising Kildare’s best and brightest in this year’s awards, and wish the best of luck to all nominees.”
