Our 2017 Businesswoman Of The Year Awards Are Happening TONIGHT!

by Jennifer McShane
20th Nov 2017

Anne Doyle, Marissa Carter, Young Businesswoman of the Year and Gillian Hennessy

It’s finally here! We received hundreds of nominations, spent hours compiling a shortlist, endlessly debated, discussed (often argued) for what is one of our biggest nights of the year. After months of preparation, our hugely anticipated 2017 IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year Awards, is mere hours away and we can hardly contain our excitement!

We have nine categories, with over 90 nominees; all inspirational, talented businesswomen and we can’t wait to honour this incredible group. As well as handing out the awards, we’ll also have prizes, cocktails, selfie competitions and (all going well), more tweets, snaps, and Instagram stories than we can count – it’s going to be a fantastic night, and we can’t wait to share and experience it with so many extraordinary women.

We’re in the final stages of preparation (as you’ll see from our gallery above) just before the main event. We’ll be kicking off at 6.00PM tonight at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road and enjoying the glitz, glamour and fun until the early hours. See you there and don’t forget to follow all the action on our Twitter (don’t forget to include the hashtag #BWOTY17) and Instagram accounts throughout the night as we reveal the winners and plenty of behind-the-scenes tidbits.

Congratulations to all our nominees and winners!
