Organised by the County Carlow Chamber, the awards have become recognised as one of the most important events in the calendar and this year sees the introduction of some changes in the categories to help take this even further. Brian O’Farrell, CEO of County Carlow Chamber said “These awards recognise the great businesses and individuals who work continuously to make Carlow an amazing place to live and work, and as nominations are open to the public, it is the people of Carlow who have the opportunity to speak up and highlight a business or individual that deserves recognition.”
This year a number of new awards have been launched, including Carlow Digital Award and Carlow Marketing Award. Details of all the awards categories and how to nominate are available on www.carlowchamber.com with nominations open until 12 noon of 30th August 2017. Winners will be announced on 28th September at the Awards Ceremony which will be held at the Visual Centre for Contemporary Art.
We are very excited to announce that Niamh has been nominated to Carlow Business Awards 2017 in the "Carlow Hidden Gem" category.
