Downtown in Business (DIB) welcomed 400 guests for the the City of Liverpool Business Awards gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Sponsored by Sedulo Group, the annual event celebrates the success of the city’s most best companies and entrepreneurs. DIB chief executive Frank McKenna said this year’s awards celebrated the resilience of those businesses that had survived the pandemic.

“It was great to see a packed room in Liverpool once again,” he said. “And also encouraging to have so many businesses attend who have clearly not only survived but thrived despite the huge challenges of the past 18 months.”
