The celebrations have barely finished but you can be sure that the organisers of the hugely successful Ballymena Business Excellence Awards are already preparing their strategy for next year’s event!

Ballymena Chamber of Commerce and Industry with generous support from Ballymena Borough Council and - of course - the various category sponsors, deserve the highest praise for their efforts in staging a magnificent gala evening which brought together all the local strands of retail, commerce, industry and innovation.

We will be carrying a special feature with all the award winners in next week’s Ballymena Times.
