In August, Explore Buxton was thrilled to learn we had been selected as winner of Local Tourism Guide of the Year Derbyshire 2023 at this year’s Midlands Enterprise Awards, for the second year running. SME News announced the full list of winners at the end of August.
Now in its seventh consecutive year, the Midlands Enterprise programme was created to recognise and award those SMEs of all different sizes. They cover a range of businesses and industries that are based within the heartland of the country.
Awards Coordinator Victoria Cotton commented on the success of this year’s winners: “I am extremely pleased to have worked with such ardent individuals and businesses which continuously alter the way the rest of the UK sees the Midlands. I wish them all the best as they continue to shine. Onward and upward. Our winners are strong, unwavering, and full of life, and the businesses and individuals within this year’s awards programme are setting the pace for many developments to come.”
SME News prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.
“We are thrilled to have been chosen for this award, for the second consecutive year! This achievement would not have been possible without the incredible dedication of our team as well as our customers, partners and businesses we work with and of course our readers.”
“We are truly passionate about Buxton and the Peak District and showcasing local businesses to support our local economy; more important than ever in today’s challenging economic climate. Using digital content to find local information and to explore whats’s on and where to go, has catapulted post-pandemic and businesses have benefitted from this. People want information on the go, in their pocket, on their smart phone. We have seen a huge increase in engagement across all our digital platforms in the last two years. We could not continue without the on-going support of our partners and the local business community, so thank you to everyone”, Jen Francis, co-owner.
