About the awards

The North East Business Awards are an annual celebration of successful and innovative businesses doing fantastic things right here in the North East!

Our headline sponsors for 2022 are Sage and Middlesbrough College Group, who have been long-standing supporters of the awards.

The Awards take the format of three sub-regional heats which take place in summer, with the winners of each category at each heat then going head-to-head for the overall titles at the Grand Final in Autumn.
