The Merton Best Business Awards is one of the most prestigious honours a business can receive. We have been rewarding the innovators, the success stories and the entrepreneurs of the borough since 2013.
This year, we have joined forces with AFC Wimbledon, our new Venue Partners and we are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the award ceremony at their state-of-the-art facility on Thursday 5 October.
The evening will continue to provide guests with a glamorous, fun and memorable night. This year we can go bigger with more guests, entertainment, a drinks reception with a difference, a delicious three course meal…all rounded off with spectacular views of the football ground.
It’s the perfect setting to celebrate and reward businesses that have shown resilience, excellence and innovation in the borough.
Bal Srai, AFC Wimbledon’s Head of Revenue, Operations, and Ticketing, said: “It’s a real honour for us to host this prestigious event – and one that rewards the resilience, excellence and innovation of local businesses. AFC Wimbledon’s journey is characterised by showing such resilience against the odds, and it was always our vision that our new stadium would host large community events like this. We’re constantly striving to be a state-of the-art facility that’s regarded as a centrepiece for special events in Merton. With this in mind, we’ve updated our lighting and sound systems in our main function room, so that we can offer an events space for the Merton Best Business Awards that’s fitting for such an important occasion. As we grow our business and commercial operations further, we’re looking forward to hosting similar events as these Awards for many years to come.”
Simon Marsh, Partner at WSM Advisors and Headline Sponsors said: “It’s coming home – Merton Best Business Awards 2023 gala finals are being held at the home of AFC Wimbledon! WSM Advisors are thrilled to be working with AFC Wimbledon on this fantastic event to recognise and reward the Best Business innovators, teams and talents from across Merton borough. The fabulous new venue will make Merton Best Business Awards 2023 even bigger and even better and we can’t wait to celebrate with you all.”
Winners will be announced at the Merton Best Business Awards on Thursday 5 October.
