Last week saw businesses of all kinds in Ilkley come together at a glittering event held at the Kings Hal and Winter Gardens on Friday evening.
Attended by the Lord and Lady Mayoress of Bradford and other distinguished guests, the evening was a triumphant success which exhibited the great diversity of the businesses in Ilkley. The room was packed and this year’s hosts, Stray FM kept the energy high throughout the evening.
The event was a sell-out and even had a waiting list of over 70 people. Marketing Director of SmartSearch UK, the events headline sponsor said ““SmartSearch were pleased to be the headline sponsor of the brilliant Ilkley business awards evening. Congratulations to all of the winners. It was encouraging to see so many successful businesses in the area coming together to celebrate the thriving Ilkley business community. Long may it continue.”
