Schiller Hall

We’re proud to reveal our shortlist for the Devon & Plymouth Chamber Awards 2021.

Our accolades honour the best in entrepreneurship and enterprise, and the event has become one of the most prestigious in the South West business calendar.

The sought-after awards are expertly judged and culminate in a glittering ceremony where members of the Chamber are honoured for their success and innovation.

Each of the businesses and individuals named below are now invited to our Chamber Awards Dinner which takes place on Friday, September 24, at the newly refurbished Schiller Hall at Buckfast Abbey in Buckfastleigh.

Stuart Elford, CEO of the Devon & Plymouth Chamber, said: “A huge thank you to each and every member who submitted an entry for this year’s Devon & Plymouth Chamber Awards.

“It has been an incredibly tough decision for our panel, with so many of our members enjoying great success over the last 12 months and many more thriving during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We’ve somehow managed to select fantastic businesses and individuals in eight different awards categories, and we now have the even tougher task of choosing our winners

“We can’t wait to welcome all of our members to stunning Buckfast Abbey this autumn. It promises to be a fabulous night of celebration with the long months of lockdown finally over. See you all there!”
