Athlone Business Awards 2022 launched

The Athlone Business Awards 2022 was launched by Athlone Chamber of Commerce at the Radisson Blu Hotel recently. This year’s gala awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, 22nd of October, also at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone.

Speaking at the launch, the Chamber President, Alan Shaw called on businesses to commence submitting nominations ahead of the 9th of September deadline through the Athlone Chamber website.

He stated: “This business event is Athlone’s most prestigious and successful. Athlone Chamber of Commerce is no stranger when it comes to recognising and rewarding those in business and in our community who push out the boundaries and lead in the 15 key award categories that are set out in this year’s Athlone Business Awards”.

Also speaking at the launch, the CEO of Athlone Chamber Gerry McInerney said: “We are delighted to be launching the Athlone Business Awards 2022, especially given the challenges that have been faced by businesses and communities over the last two years. The theme of these awards will be resilience and innovation, and we look forward to seeing the details of the nominations once they start to come through over the coming weeks. We would also like to thank our local sponsors for their generous support and promotion of this event”.

Throughout the years the awards have grown to become one of the most important dates in calendars across Athlone and its environs, recognising the innovation, talent, quality and entrepreneurial spirit of businesses and the people within Athlone. While many of the categories will remain unchanged, there are some changes which recognise the efforts of the business community in areas such as digitalisation and climate action, full details of which are now available on the Athlone Chamber website.
