We are excited to announce that Agri-Tech East was named Networking Group of the Year at the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards during an awards ceremony at Duxford Imperial War Museum on Thursday 4 July. The awards celebrate businesses and individuals that have demonstrated success and provided an impressive contribution within their industry.
Belinda Clarke, Director of Agri-Tech East, says: “To win an award is always an honour, particularly as Cambridgeshire has many excellent networking groups and organisations, many of whom are very well established. In just five-years our network has attracted many high quality businesses showing the value of membership.
“We are not geographically restricted to the “east” – our members come from far and wide and we work hard to provide membership benefits that reflect the increasingly international outlook of our network.
“To win a business award is always special – and as we are often mistaken for being government funded it is good to have recognition that Agri-Tech East is a business! We receive no core public funding and as such are an independent commercially-driven organisation that has grown organically through membership, sponsorship and event revenues.
“This award is a great endorsement for the hard work of the team and huge thanks go to all of them, particularly Becky, Laura and Fiona, and our members who support the work we do and the wider agri-tech ecosystem.”
If you are interested in joining Agri-Tech East’s award-winning network take a look at the benefits here, as well as the businesses you’ll be joining here. And you don’t even need to be a member to enjoy our events – see what networking opportunities we provide throughout the year here.
