Carousel Lights announced as finalist in ‘The Oscars’ of business awards!

Today, Carousel Lights has been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank New Business Of The Year at the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Carousel Lights, already a holder of the prestigious Cool Brand 2016/17 accolade, designs and produces stylish Feature Lights using neon, fairground lights and lightboxes.

Ben Reynolds, Founder & Director of Carousel Lights said “We’re over the moon that whilst we’re already recognised as designing stunning feature lights for clients including celebrities, bars and galleries, Carousel Lights has now become one of just ten companies who are in the running for the best new business, hopefully recognising the effort that goes in behind the scenes to us having become a leading UK company.”

The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.

Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.

For the first time, RT Hon Conor McGinn MP recently hosted a reception for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards at the House of Commons. This enabled finalists to meet fellow entrants, the National Business Awards Advisory Board members, judges (who they will present to in September) and sponsors of each category.

Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
