On Wednesday 22nd May, Sandicliffe Ford attended one of Nottingham’s biggest business events at De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre for this year’s Nottingham Post Business Awards.
To put it into perspective, Mike Sassi, Nottingham Post Editor shared: "In case you are wondering why you are here, it is because your businesses create the jobs and generate the revenues that drive our economy.”
The statement was strong enough to reiterate the sense of community and celebration of the triumphs achieved by local businesses in and around Nottinghamshire.
Luke Edwards for Sandicliffe says “As sponsors of the event, it was amazing to see the level of energy attendees brought along with them and it was a great honour to be amongst such innovative and like-minded people.”
