The Kilkenny Business Awards take place this Saturday night in Hotel Kilkenny, hosted by Kilkenny Chamber and a chance for Kilkenny Business to honour the success stories of 2011.

The black tie event - also known as the Kilkenny Oscars of business - starts at 7pm with a drinks reception swiftly followed by a five course meal and the announcement of the winners.

The MC for the event is Mary Kennedy of Nationwide fame and it promises to be a night of networking, fun and entertainment.

“It’s been a long process for the eighteen judges and the competition has been fierce. The judges were particularly struck by the detailed presentations, the innovation shown in their business and their commitment to customer service. The Awards have always been independently judged with no involvement by Chamber which ensures fairness to all finalists. A few tickets are still available so contact Chamber today to book your place at the biggest Kilkenny business event in 2011” Alison McGrath, Chamber CEO.

Full report in next weeks Kilkenny People on the highlights of the Chamber Business awards. The Kilkenny People are media partners of the event and wish all entrants every success and an enjoyable night.
