Following on from the phenomenal success of last year's Best of Mayo Awards, the Mayo Advertiser has launched its second annual Best of Mayo Business Awards 2013. These awards are a fantastic opportunity to showcase your business as the best in Mayo in a specific category and will allow your business to stand out from the crowd.
Voting will be open to the public - your customers, the people who's opinion matters most.
Last year's inaugural awards attracted more than 7,200 votes indicating the massive public interest in this competition.
The Best of Mayo Awards 2013 allows your business to be showcased to your community and allows the general public (your customers), to vote for their favourite businesses.
All businesses who register will receive posters to place in their businesses to show the public that they are participating and to encourage their customers to vote. Businesses can also request the Best of Mayo logo to place on their own marketing material, facebook page, etc.
A marketing campaign will appear in the Mayo Advertiser to encourage people to vote for their favourite business.
Any Mayo business can register up until midnight on Monday, July 29 2013.
Voting begins on Friday, August 2 at www.bestofmayo.com and closes at midnight on Monday, September 2 2013.
A lunchtime awards ceremony will take place on Friday, September 13 2013 where the top three finalists of each category will be invited to attend. The winner in each category will be announced at the awards ceremony and presented with a beautiful individualised trophy. An overall Best of Mayo award will be presented to the business that receives the most votes.
Last year's winners were Bosh Bar and Restaurant (Pub), Mulranny Park Hotel (Hotel), Market Kitchen (Restaurant/Cafe), New Look (Fashion Outlet), Foxford Woollen Mills (Retailer), John O'Donnell Pharmacy (Health/Beauty), Edward Conway Motors (Motor Dealer), Horkan's Garden Centre (Home and Garden), Boxercise West (Service Provider), Castlebar Credit Union (Professional/Financial Services), and the overall Best of Mayo Award went to Castlebar Credit Union.
