Both the 2015 SME Awards and Valentine’s Day are quickly approaching and there is no better way to show a favourite Small and Medium Enterprise some love like nominating them for an SME Award. The final date for nominations is February 14, 2015 – Valentine’s Day.

The SME Awards will take place on April 25, 2015 at the Radisson Hotel in Cork.

Mulley Communications, the team who operate the successful Web Awards and Social Media Awards have launched the 2015 SME Awards as an informal, fun, transparent event that invites the public to be involved in the judging. Any SME can enter the awards for free, however sponsors may not be nominated in any category and can’t influence judging.

Blacknight are showing their love for SMEs by sponsoring the 2015 SME Awards.

The ceremony is intended as an evening away from looking after a small to medium enterprise and to celebrate the hard work of the nominees throughout the year.

Blacknight will sponsor the awards show and also provide the Web Hosting and act as SSL Supplier. Damien Mulley, SME Awards organiser states: “We're thrilled that Blacknight are headline sponsors as they're the perfect example of what many Irish SMEs want to strive to be. A company that started off as a two-person operation and within a few years has nearly 40 staff and is a global brand. To top it all off they're now supporting Irish companies so that some of them could become "the next Blacknight.”

Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight states: “We are honoured to be the headline sponsor of the first SME Awards. Everyone at Blacknight believes very strongly in the importance of recognising the hard work of individuals struggling to build a successful business day in and day out. We know first hand the kind of work it takes to make something like this happen and look forward to helping Mulley Communications throw an unforgettable party.”

Previous Mulley Communications awards shows featured ball pits, bouncy castles and games of supermarket sweep. The organisers stress that this is a no formal wear, no pressure event.

SME’s may enter up to three categories, but only the owner of an SME or their agent can enter them in the awards.. Entries may be modified at any time.
