The one they all want to win

The Be Inspired Business Awards, the BIBAs, is Lancashire’s largest and longest running business awards programme.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing health and safety risks, the main BIBAs event in September is taking an annual break. Instead, we’ll be running a virtual 2020 event called The BIBAs Heroes.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating human and economic impact. Lancastrian businesses have responded by doing what they do best. Rolled their sleeves up, innovated and helped each other. If you know of a business or person that has showen hero qualities, enter our video awards here.

The BIBAs edge

The BIBAs is about much more than recognising and rewarding great businesses and people.

Our purpose is to drive growth, cultivate excellence and fuel innovation throughout the Lancashire economy, while nurturing the next generation of business leaders.

That’s the BIBAs difference. And that’s why the BIBAs is the one they all want to win.

Our sponsors

We have a range of sponsorship opportunities available that can help propel your brand. Our opportunities include event categories, BIBAs website and channel sponsorship, awards brochure and the event itself.

If you would like to receive a sponsorship pack or discuss opportunities, please call the BIBAs team on 01772 653000.
