‘North West’s premier business awards for women’


The Awards Ceremony

The Enterprise Vision Awards are 11 years old! Each year, the awards ceremony becomes spectacular than ever before so make sure that you join us at the Enterprise Vision Awards.

The awards ceremony is a glittering evening held at the iconic Empress Ballroom in The Winter Gardens in Blackpool. It is an occasion to join over guests from across the region and show your support for female entrepreneurship in the North West.

  • Inspire and motivate your team – show them how much you value their part in your company’s success
  • Treat your clients to a night to remember – rekindle new and existing relationships, create new business opportunities and increase your impact
  • Learn from the individuals and organisations that are excelling, transforming and growing in their industries
  • Use the networking, inspirational stories and atmosphere of celebration of the Enterprise Vision Awards to cement your stakeholder relationships and grow your business

We’d like you to make the most of your EVAS experience. Doors open at 6pm and you will be greeted with a welcome drink. The Empress Ballroom is a delight to behold and there are lots of opportunities for photographs. Social media will be awash with #EVAS2022 and our team will be busy capturing the evening as it unfolds. Connect with fellow finalists, sponsors and other attendees beforehand and make sure to meet up and say hello. If you’re from the same town or county, it’s a good PR opportunity to take a photo together and promote your involvement.
