Working with sponsors and partners in business, the Council helps organise major events which showcase and celebrate the talent and drive that’s behind business in Burnley such as the prestigious Burnley Business Awards and Burnley Business Week.
Burnley is changing and at the heart of this change are our businesses who fuel the local economy, whose success is linked to the success of Burnley.
Adapting to change, finding new markets, diversifying and developing new ways of working are key to the survival and success of many businesses and these awards recognise how local companies are adapting to change to open up new markets and grow.
It’s not just our businesses who are changing; Burnley is changing and repositioning itself to compete with larger development areas and prepare the way for economic growth. The borough is re-creating itself with new infrastructure and developments which will support the growth of existing firms and position itself as a viable base for new and relocating companies.
