In response to popular demand, the deadline for entries for this year's awards has been extended until Friday 13th October
The deadline for entries for the BusinessGreen Technology Awards 2017 has been extended by one week to 5pm on Friday 13th October.
In response to popular demand and in order to ensure a level playing field, the UK's leading clean tech companies, entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors will have a few more days to submit their entries for this year's awards.
Any entry that has already been submitted can be updated and resubmitted up until the new deadline.
"We have had unprecedented levels of interest for this year's awards and, at what is a busy time for clean tech firms, there has been a number of requests to extend the deadline," said BusinessGreen Editor-in-Chief James Murray. "In order to ensure a level playing field for everyone and make sure we are fulfilling our remit of showcasing the full breadth of the clean tech sector we are extending the deadline by one week.
The BusinessGreen Technology Awards will take place from midday on Friday December 1st at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in Central London. It will bring together leading clean tech firms, start-ups, investors, and entrepreneurs to celebrate the exciting progress made by the sector in the past year and highlight some of the most inspiring technologies being developed and deployed in the UK today.
BusinessGreen is today also delighted to announce the awards ceremony will be hosted by broadcaster Robert Llewellyn. The star of Red Dwarf and Scrapheap Challenge is one of the UK's leading clean tech advocates and an entrepreneur and investor himself.
In addition to an awards ceremony presented by Llewellyn, shortlisted companies and organisations will be able to enjoy a three course meal, drinks reception, and exceptional networking opportunities.
The BusinessGreen Technology Awards are free to enter, however, before submitting an entry organisations should check they are able to attend the awards lunch and ceremony on December 1st and read the full terms and conditions for the Awards.
Clean tech firms entering the awards are also invited to join BusinessGreen at our 10th anniversary summit on November 9th, which will bring together thought leaders from across the green economy to discuss the challenges and opportunities the sector faces over the next decade.
