Ambitious and aspiring companies still have time to enter the prestigious Kent Excellence in Business Awards after the deadline for entries was extended.

The cut off for KEiBA applications has been pushed back to March 14, meaning there is still a chance for enterprises new and old, large and small, to make their mark and grab some media recognition.

Held in partnership between Kent County Council and the KM Group, the KEiBAs are going from strength to strength, with 15 categories, including a new manufacturing award for 2014.

KCC cabinet member for economic development Mark Dance said: “The chance is still there to be a part of the ongoing story of KEiBA success – and win some of the kudos that comes with the scheme.

“The recognition that comes with a KEiBA award should not be underestimated.

“Young entrepreneurs, established businesses and small enterprises all have something to showcase and I know the judges look forward to seeing everything that Kent businesses have to offer.”

Now in their sixth year, the KEiBAs climax in a gala dinner for finalists, held in June.

Chairman of judges for 2014 Geoff Miles said: “The passion for success that exists in Kent and Medway businesses really come through in KEiBA.

“It’s like a lens that allows the county’s dedication to excellence to be seen more clearly.

“This is a great chance to say: ‘Kent business means quality. We can stand up and be counted.’”

KM Group chairman Geraldine Allinson said: “Awards are one of the most powerful and cost-effective marketing tools.

“A prestigious KEiBA win helps organisations to stand out from the crowd, it boost staff morale, sends a positive message to your existing customers and helps attract new ones.”
