Happy hump day everyone! Thanks to Downtown in Business we kicked off our Wednesday morning with the lovely news that we'd been shortlisted as 'Best Newcomer in Manchester' in the 2017 City of Manchester Business Awards.

The City of Manchester Business Awards, also known as the COMBAs, is an annual event that aims to celebrate the brightest and best businesses in Manchester by opening up a public vote. The shortlist is the output of this public voting process.

Having just moved into Manchester in early 2015, we're proud to be part of this vibrant business community and honoured to have been voted within this category. Whilst the business has a long history, we've been blessed by an incredibly warm reception in the city over the past two years and have been lucky enough to secure some major contracts in the area over the past 12 months, including Deliveroo, the Hallé Orchestra, Morson Group, Royal Exchange Theatre and Acdoco (Dr Beckmann).

This year, the COMBAS returns but to a new venue, The Principal Hotel, on Thursday 22nd June for a glittering awards ceremony. We look forward to seeing everyone there.

Final voting is now open and we'd love your support. Please cast your votes over here for us and the other nominees. Congrats to everyone shortlisted and best of luck!
