Almost 300 business gathered together, many for the first time in almost two years, at Gloucestershire Airport to celebrate the 17 winners at the first SoGlos Business Awards event.
As co-headline sponsors, we were there to cheer on all of the shortlisted businesses and renew our networking skills with friends new and old! For small businesses particularly, it has been an extremely challenging period and the energy in Weston Aviation's hangar was warming and welcoming across the board. We can't wait to see all of those familiar faces back in Growth Hubs across Gloucestershire.
