SCCC named as a Finalist in the Somerset Business Awards 2024

The finalists have been announced for this year’s prestigious Somerset Business Awards 2024, with Somerset County Cricket Club up for the “Best Use of Digital Technology Award” sponsored by Teapot Creative.

The award highlights how the use of new, innovative digital technology has helped a business to grow and offer new services or types of working, and recognises firms in the digital and technology sector and beyond who are using robotics, apps or even artificial intelligence to stand out in the marketplace.

Somerset have been nominated for the Our Region Rises Membership campaign, which highlights how the Club brings the whole of the South West together.

The Somerset Business Awards are run annually by Somerset Chamber of Commerce and the 2024 finalists come from all corners of the county, including Bridgwater, Merriott, Weston-super-Mare, Taunton, West Pennard, Frome, Glastonbury, Langport, Midsomer Norton, Highbridge, Yeovil, Roadwater, Burrowbridge, Wellington, Minehead, Curry Rivel and Stoke St Michael.

This year is the 19th anniversary of the awards, which are again supported by main sponsor Albert Goodman. The grand final will be hosted by Global broadcast journalist Cormac MacMahon at the Winter Gardens Pavilion, in Weston-super-Mare, on March 22nd.

Somerset Chamber Chief Executive, Emma Rawlings, thanked everyone who had entered the awards and said the most hotly contested categories had included Service Excellence, Small Business of the Year and Employer of the Year.

She said: “Despite some really challenging trading conditions, it’s been incredibly encouraging to see so many fantastic applications from business and charities from across the county – they are doing some great work and we are honoured to be able to highlight that through these awards.

“The finalists have come from across the county, representing a wide range of sectors and industries and we are looking forward to celebrating their achievements at the final on March 22.”

Michael Cahill, a Partner at Albert Goodman, added: “This is our fourteenth year as main sponsor and we have seen some excellent businesses enter the awards and then go on to even greater things.

“The awards are a fantastic celebration of the very best of Somerset business, and entering is a great chance to boost your profile, boost staff morale and ultimately boost your business.”
