The Belfast Telegraph Business Awards in partnership with Ulster Bank is the biggest celebration of business success in Northern Ireland.
As firms face an unprecedented challenge this year due to Covid-19, we are pleased to proceed by announcing our winners today ahead of a celebration lunch on October 9.
Mark Crimmins, head of Ulster Bank in Northern Ireland, said: "Companies across NI have shown great resilience this year, so it is fitting that the Belfast Telegraph Business Awards, in partnership with Ulster Bank, show resilience themselves and proceed with recognising impressive business achievements.
"Indeed, as the focus now turns increasingly towards securing an economic recovery, it is perhaps more important than ever that we do shine a light on examples of innovation and ingenuity. The category winners of the awards represent a diverse range of talent and expertise across small businesses, family firms, and larger corporates," he added.
"I want to congratulate all of them on their success in the awards, and we look forward to revealing the overall Outstanding Business of the Year on October 9."
