Captains of industry, SMEs, global brand leaders, entrepreneurs, members of the media and many more were in the audience at the Culloden Hotel to celebrate the 13th annual Belfast Telegraph Business Awards in association with British Airways.

It was refreshing to feel so much optimism in the room with particular emphasis on how well businesses in Northern Ireland have been coping during some of the toughest economic times they have faced in recent years.

Wendy Austin was in charge of proceedings and before the event got under way, mentalist David Meade had everyone gobsmacked with his mind-bending antics. However, he was not able to divulge who had won what before the ceremony and Howard Hastings OBE was equally shocked when he was presented with an honorary award for his contribution to tourism.

The judges were particularly interested in finding out how our firms have survived these turbulent times and the big winners on the night were IT company Novosco, winning overall Business of the Year, and Brian Conlon of First Derivatives PLC who was Businessperson of the Year. There was an extra prize as Alex Todd from NSC Insurance won a trip to Hong Kong courtesy of British Airways.
