Last night, (Thursday 10 November) the Midland Hotel in Manchester hosted the 2016 M.E.N. Business of the Year awards, celebrating the performance of the North West's top companies. Not only did the event showcase a number of the larger corporations in the region but it was great to see many Private Businesses represented and winning awards including, Want That Trend, the online fashion business, and F.Duerr & Sons, the family-owned jam, peanut butter and condiments maker.  

Manchester and its surrounding area is a fantastic place to do business and last night was a reminder of this.
