In Association with our Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council

Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Chamber announces County Business Awards – celebrating Business Endeavour in DLR

• Closing Date 16th September 2022 – time to enter!

Dún Laoghaire- Rathdown Chamber of Commerce, the leading business organisation in DLR County is delighted to confirm the DLR Chamber County Business Awards for 2022, with a closing date of 16th September for businesses in the county to enter.

DLR as a county continues to grow from strength to strength and is recognised as one of the key counties in Ireland in terms of work-life balance. With strongly performing areas such as Sandyford Business District, Dundrum Town Centre and now Cherrywood, more growth in both population and business is forecast in the next five years.

And so, following the business disruption of Covid, and the lack of actual Awards, except for online in 2020, DLR County Chamber is putting a real push behind these awards which recognise Business Endeavour in the county in key categories:

• Green Business Award
• Sustainable Development Goals (SDG/CSR)
• Age-Friendly Business Recognition Award
• Outstanding Business Resilience
• New Business Entrepreneurs
• Small Business Award
• Diversity & Inclusion Impact Award
• Innovative use of Digital
• Professional Services
• Health & Wellness in the Workplace Impact Award
• Hospitality Award
• Tourism Award
• DLR Chamber Leader/Person of the Year Award

DLR County Chamber itself has already started to see growth in membership again this year in both members and corporate members and Sponsors – all of which are the lifeblood of DLR Chamber, a voluntary organisation.

The entry procedure for the DLR County Business Award categories is now open and online and are supported by Dún Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council and the following confirmed Sponsors:

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council
Allied Irish Banks
Bank of Ireland
Nutgrove Shopping Centre
RBK Accountants

Women in Business (WIBA)

The closing date for Entry is Friday 16th September 2022. The Awards judging process is managed and assessed by the Board of DLR County Chamber, together with guest Judges, and the shortlist of Entries will be announced on 30th September 2022.

A Black-Tie Gala Awards Evening will be held at The Talbot Hotel Stillorgan to announce the category winners on Thursday 27th October 2022. A great night always for businesses in the county!
