Last night saw Connect attend the Express & Star Business Awards, as finalists for both the Business of the Year category and for the Innovation Award. The black-tie event attracted a wide variety of businesses from around the West Midlands and was held at local venue Wolverhampton Racecourse.
Having been described by the judges as ‘an exceptional finalist’ Connect narrowly missed out on the Business of the Year prize, however, we were thrilled to be crowned winners of the innovation category.
The competition was tough, with the judges saying:
“Specifically, it was the creation of highly responsive digital multimedia platforms that impressed at Connect. This let them build a turnkey solution which has become the cornerstone of some of the most influential businesses and iconic brands in the West Midlands.”
The awards were a fantastic opportunity for businesses to showcase the impressive work that is constantly taking place in the West Midlands region.
Managing Director of Connect Antony Green commented on the win:
“Having committed a considerable amount of time and effort to both our entries for the awards and the visits from the judges, we were thrilled to see our hard work pay off and be presented with an award on the night. Innovation is one of the key behaviours that underpin our brand so it is fantastic to be recognised for this award.”
