That winning feeling...
8 February 2013
It proved to be a very successful evening for LabLogic at the recent Sheffield Chamber of Commerce Business Awards as the company scooped two prestigious awards.
The Sheffield Business Awards are seen by many as the event to be at and to be seen at in the region. Now in its 11th year and regularly attracting over 1000 guests each time it is held, this event is now firmly established as the city region's premier showcase of business and enterprise.
Organised by the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, the awards are designed to recognise and reward the business success of companies operating in the Sheffield city region. Various awards are on offer covering a range of areas.
LabLogic submitted applications for the Excellence in International Trade and Business Overseas Award and the Innovation and Technology Award. Unfortunately only one was successful, but it did lead to the company being shortlisted in the Excellence in International Trade and Business Overseas category.
The awards ceremony was a tense affair on the night. The company had been successful once before, but that was more than seven years ago. Could it happen again? Everyone had their fingers crossed, hoping that history may just repeat itself.
The event was quite a spectacular affair with two magicians entertaining the crowd with a mix of comedy, magic and illusion. Then finally, after a hearty meal, it was time for the winners to be revealed. Winners came and went as the categories were announced and the successful candidates accepted their awards in a blaze of flash photography. Eventually it was time for the Excellence in International Trade and Business Overseas Award. Three candidates, only one winner. Who would it be? Someone whispered LabLogic and almost immediately it was announced. It was LabLogic. Success!
For many that would have been enough, but just when everyone thought the night could offer no more it was time for the Outstanding Business of the Year Award - a category that every shortlisted company was entitled to take part in. Could there be a chance to scoop this award to add to the collection? Yes there was. Unbelievably LabLogic came out of the hat as a winner for that as well. Pure magic!
