Scarab4 is proud to be sponsoring the Innovation Award for Northumberland and Tyneside at this year’s North East Business Awards.

Every year the North East Business Awards celebrates and recognises businesses’ achievements, successes and innovations in the region, and Scarab4 is not only sponsoring the acclaimed Innovation Award for Northumberland and Tyneside, we have also been pleased to support the event organiser, Reach PLC, with additional judging. This has included judging the Digital Technology award in Northumberland and Tyneside and we are currently well underway with judging the Small Business Award in the Teesside region.

The awards ceremony for the Northumberland and Tyneside heat is being held at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, on the 27th February, and we are thoroughly looking forward to presenting the award to the company that we believe is at the forefront of originality and innovation.

Prior to this ceremony, Scarab4 has visited those shortlisted for the awards, to meet the businesses and to get a better understanding of what they do, their products or services, and why they have been nominated for their respective awards. When judging, we considered all aspects of the business relating to the award they have been shortlisted to narrow this down to a winner.

The companies shortlisted for the Innovation Award are OpenWorks Engineering, Transmission Dynamics and Northern Gas and Power. We were extremely impressed by each one, of all of which demonstrated revolutionary products and services. Judging for this award has been a difficult decision to make and we would like to take this opportunity to wish the three companies nominated the best of luck for the ceremony.

The North East Business Awards has a strong reputation throughout the country supporting businesses in the region and we are honoured to be supporting and taking part in such an integral event. To find out more about the event, visit North East Business Awards website.
