More than 200 business people attended the 2019 Canterbury Business Awards, held at the Broome Park Hotel, which reward and celebrate businesses in a number of different categories.
The annual awards are run by Best Business Events with their partners the IoD, fsb, The Canterbury INDEX Magazine and Heart, with the support of platinum headline sponsors Agilis Mobile, gold sponsor Girlings Solicitors and Canterbury headline sponsor Dynamix.
