We received over 390 nominations, spent hours compiling a shortlist, endlessly debated, discussed (often argued) and now, it’s here – one of our biggest nights of the year. After months of preparation, our hugely anticipated 2016 ?IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year Awards, are mere hours away and we are buzzing with excitement.

We have nine categories, with over 90 nominees; all inspirational, talented businesswomen and we can’t wait to honour such an incredible group of women at our special tenth-anniversary event. We’re expecting 800 guests tonight and 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 DoubleTree by Hilton 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?#BWOTY16) ?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!

The IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year Awards 2016 are sponsored by Samsung, eir, Enterprise Ireland and No 7, and proudly supported by Newstalk, Independent.ie and Marks & Spencer. Winners will be announced tonight at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
