UTV Business Awards for 2010 Announced

UTVNorthern Ireland’s premier awards for the business sector have been launched for 2010 at UTV’s headquarters in Belfast, with the gong show taking place in October.



The UTV Business Eye Awards range from Business Personality and Company of the Year through to specialist awards for top retailer, leading international company, best employer and green company of the year.


Michael Wilson, Managing Director, UTV Television said: “The UTV Business Eye Awards have become a major landmark in the business calendar here in Northern Ireland and we’re delighted to be closely involved again this year.


“We’re looking forward to recognising the best companies, organisations and individuals from the business community here in October.”


The UTV Business Eye Awards haven’t just grown to become the premier business awards on the domestic front. The awards night itself has become famous for its entertainment in previous years from the likes of X Factor star Rhydian Roberts and the Supreme Dream Girls from Detroit, USA.


“This October’s event at the Culloden will follow on from the great nights we’ve had in previous years,” says Brenda Buckley of Business Eye. “We have another entertainer lined up who will be flying in directly from London’s West End…..and we’re confident that this year’s evening will be just as spectacular as previous ones.”


UTV is the regional ITV broadcaster for Northern Ireland and continues to be one of the most successful local stations, with its local news programme UTV Live gaining some of the best ratings for a regional magazine show in the UK.
