Nominations were invited in August this year, with over 260 companies being put forward. Voting commenced in October for 14 days when Manchester Business people cast over 146,000 votes online.

360 people gathered for the glittering black tie event where over 40 Awards were handed out.

Host and Founder of The Talk of Manchester, Paul Kilroe told the audience, “Whether you leave tonight a Winner, with a Special Commendation or simply with pride in your nomination, you do so safe in the knowledge you are the best this great City has to offer.”

“We know you are the best because your clients and peers have literally voted in their thousands to tell us how good you are.”

The event also raised funds for local charity Kidscan, a charity dedicated to beating Children’s Cancer. Cancer is the leading cause of death in children in the UK. Kidscan are one of the only charities in the UK solely dedicated to combating children’s cancer.
