Frequently Asked Questions
1. I’m a new business, can I enter?
A: You bet! If your business has started within 12 months from the 3rd of January 2020, you can enter into our newcomer category and/or your own category. (You can only be entered into the newcomer category once you have entered a category for your business).
2. How much is administration fee & why do we have one?
A: The administration entry fee for each category is £45. Payments are to be made online via our registration process. As we don’t have any sponsorship, this enables us to be completely independent and flexible to run the awards how we see fit, FOR YOU. Without the administration fee, these awards simply can’t go ahead. But we think the small fee is worth it.
3. I’ve heard at other awards; companies pay for their awards, via advertisement/sponsorship and who buys the most tickets on the awards evening. Is this true?
A: We can’t comment on other awards and how they operate, however The Wedding Business Awards main ethos and core value is integrity. We have NO sponsorships. You do not have to attend the regional event to find out if you have won or not. However, wouldn’t it be great to celebrate with like-minded businesses, network, and have a great time.
