Business_News

9:40am 18th November 2013

Finalist in the Dorset Business Awards will gather for an exclusive drinks reception tonight - as they reach the final step in the competition.

The winners will be announced on the 28th November.

The reception will provide finalists with the opportunity to celebrate their achievements, meet award sponsors and other shortlisted finalists as well as find out about the Awards Gala Dinner.

John Savage, Chairman of the Dorset and South Wiltshire Local Network of the IET, says: "The aim our network is to raise awareness of science, engineering and technology in the region and the Meet the Finalists event will be a perfect forum for us to do this.  With several of this year's finalists working within the engineering and technology profession, it is evident that these sectors are thriving in Dorset.  We wish everyone the best of luck."
