The 20th anniversary of the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards will be broadcast from 6.30pm on Friday 20 November 2020, at the Yarrington TV studio in Shrewsbury.
In addition to the announcement of 10 business award winners, there will also be a Shropshire-themed interactive prize quiz, locally-produced music, and lots of other surprises.

Shropshire Chamber of Commerce chief executive Richard Sheehan said:
“We may only be crowning our winners virtually, instead of in person, but these awards will still deliver the usual top-level showcase for the amazing companies we have across all corners of our county.
“It has never been more important to celebrate the extraordinary adaptability, innovation and success that is Shropshire business.
“As usual, we have been amazed and delighted by the volume and quality of entries. Shortlisting each of these categories down to a final three was a really tough task for our independent judges.”
The showpiece Company of the Year award will be decided between Oswestry-based alarm maker Aico, Shrewsbury-based DM Recruitment, and the 2017 champion, Reconomy of Telford.
Regular categories which are returning include Outstanding Customer Service, Best Small Business, Business In The Community, Best Manufacturer, and International Trade Through Export.
There are also new categories recognising excellence in Workplace Health & Wellbeing, Digital Innovation, Corporate And Environmental Responsibility, Education And Apprenticeships for businesses building important links with education.
