We were delighted to support the Cardiff Business Awards again this year. A fantastic event celebrating local businesses across a range of business sectors.

Congratulations to all the 2021 Winners!!

Councillor Huw Thomas, Leader of Cardiff Council:

“While our economy and communities are still impacted by COVID-19 the quality of this year’s entries and the subsequent winners clearly demonstrate that many of our businesses are continuing to adjust their business model to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.

Both management and staff have worked hard, not just to safeguard many businesses, but also to reposition them to grow and invest in our capital city.”
