The glitzy event, which has earned a reputation for being one of the social highlights in the York business community’s calendar has come a long way since its debut in 1991.

The inaugural Business Awards took the form of a modest prizegiving in the reception area of the then Yorkshire Evening Press in Walmgate, and concentrated solely on small businesses, with the award handed to Advance Fire Services in Lawrence Street, run by Ken and Janet Lawn.

However, the event soon grew, and the need for larger accommodation saw it move along the road to the Merchant Adventurers Hall in Fossgate, where it became a more glamorous affair.

After earning regional fame, the Press Business Awards was enjoying record entries and record attendances, prompting its final move to the expanse of the Voltigeur Suit at York Racecourse, where it will once again welcome hundreds of guests on November 23 this year.
