The Daily Post Business Awards is the biggest, the best and longest-standing business awards in the region, with a long history of recognising and rewarding successful businesses across all sectors. Last week we were incredibly privileged to be a finalist in 2 categories, being recognised as one of the top 20 businesses in North Wales. It was a fantastic event, and great to see so many amazing businesses and some familiar faces too!
We were up for two awards :
- Startup of the Year Award
- Community Award
The award criteria for each award was:
Business Start Up Award

We were quoted by the daily post say after the awards:
Director Joss Prince said: “There has been a lot of work in a short space of time, it is good to be recognised although that’s not why we do this. We just want people to have a good time at an event that is well worth coming to and they haven’t spent a fortune to get into.”
Event manager Samantha Harris, said: “It is nice to give back and create a great event with something for everybody and cost effective for families.”
And with some really stiff competition, we knew that even just getting nominated was an achievement in itself.
The Daily Post Business Awards 2022 took place on the 1st December 2022 at the grand Prichard Jones Hall, Bangor University, headline sponsor of the awards.
It was a fantastic evening being recognized for the work we have done within the community has been exciting, meeting some fabulous people and getting to hear their success stories was great. We look forward to hopefully returning in the future and to all 2023 shall bring for our events.
