The new award will recognise the most outstanding contributions made to the country by the numerous small businesses established in the UAE.

Giles Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer of Lloyds TSB Group Middle East, said: “Small businesses are important to any economy and vital in a thriving economy such as that of the UAE. Until now, however, the hard working people responsible for much of the country’s success have gone unheralded. Whilst big businesses are acknowledged widely, the smaller companies hardly receive any recognition. Well, with the Small Business Awards 2006 we will put this right.”

All UAE businesses with less than 50 staff and Dh25 million revenue wishing to apply can do so online at before September 10.

Awards will be given in categories such as Entrepreneurial Start-Up sponsored by Links Group of Companies, Outstanding Customer Service sponsored by i-mate, Advertising Impact sponsored by Dubai Eye 103.8, Corporate Social Responsibility sponsored by Allied Pickfords, Inspirational Leadership and Overall Small Business of the Year Award sponsored by Lloyds TSB.

An independent panel of judges will give the short-listed businesses ‘expert advice’ and ensure unbiased decisions in the selection process.

“We have been overwhelmed with the response the launch of this award has generated from the local business community and I would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support,” said Steve Williams, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Business and Retail Banking of Lloyds TSB Group Middle East.

More than 500 guests are expected to join the awards ceremony on November 5, 2006.
