KEiBA 2021 is coming in May
The county’s leading business awards are back with a bang for 2021.
The Kent Excellence in Business Awards – better known simply as KEiBA – has long established itself as the ultimate showcase of the best the county has to offer with winners enjoying the benefit of a boost to their reputation and their bottom line.
Having been forced to suspend last year’s event due to the pandemic, the 2021 awards return in style with even more categories to enter and a new look to the unveiling of the winners.
As companies look to bounce back in style this year after one of the toughest 12 months any of us could have imagined, can you afford not to be involved in the South East’s premier awards?
Organised by Kent County Council and the KM Media Group, there will be no awards night this year – but all winners will be revealed in a special supplement printed in October which will appear in all KM titles as well as being featured on KentOnline, our radio station kmfm and also on KMTV.
All the winners will still receive trophies and certificates to recognise their achievements.
Previous winners of a KEiBA have spoken about the positive impact winning the award has – for staff morale, brand awareness and recognition and enhanced sales.
Entries will be made online from May 19 with all the judging complying with the relevant Covid guidelines.
In addition to the regular categories, the 2021 event will also see a special award – Outstanding Covid-19 Business Response.
This one-off award will recognise the outstanding response of a business either to diversify and survive the challenges posed by the pandemic, or which went above and beyond to support the UK’s response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Maybe your business made PPE or made changes to existing products or services to help others on the frontline or to enable people to stay safe in the workplace. Alternatively, you may have launched a new initiative to protect jobs as a direct response to the pandemic.
The judges will be looking for how your business diversified, evidence of how you supported key workers or launched news products and services to help others as well as testimonials from customers or key workers.
