Companies are being urged to Make Their Mark by entering Aycliffe Business Park’s fifth annual awards competition.

• Representative on judging panel
• 10 tickets for the event
• Sponsors will each receive a dedicated (sit down) table for 10 people
• Sponsor’s logo on award
• Speech / presentation of award
• Guaranteed coverage on aycliffetoday.co.uk
• One full page editorial in Aycliffe Today Business (shared with winner)
• Full page in programme
• Social media mentions
• Inclusion on website and one blog
• Footage of company profiles with a voiceover (finalists) featuring the sponsor’s details
ABPC chair Kerina Clark said: “Make Your Mark is now firmly the annual event for Aycliffe Business Park and we’re excited to be looking forward to our fifth consecutive event.
“Make Your Mark has already highlighted lots of the brilliant success stories from around Aycliffe Business Park – including some of the lesser-known businesses as well as the high-profile firms – and we’re hoping this year’s event will unearth yet more of our hidden gems.
“It’s always a fantastic evening – one huge, collective celebration of our business park – and we hope residents and businesses will come together, as they always do, to support it.”
The Make Your Mark 2017-18 winners included Stiller (Company of the Year), South West Durham Training (Apprenticeships & Training), Pixel Media (Newcomer), Eldon Financial (Service Business), Roman (Engineering & Manufacturing), Arlington Automotive (Employer), M5tec (Small Business), Excelpoint (Innovation) and Crafter’s Companion (Export), while John Parnell was named Aycliffe Ambassador.
