Organised by Asian Media Group (AMG), the Asian Business Awards have been hosted for the past 22 years. The event is the premier awards for the South East Asian community in the UK.
The Asian Business Awards are extremely important as they not only celebrate the incredible contribution the South East Asian community has made to the UK economy but also the winners act as a spur for the next generation of entrepreneurs. Many of the winners started either with nothing more than a good education and a dream when exiled from east Africa or started as a small sole trader business and developed their businesses into multi-million-pound companies. In a challenging economy, we need business role models to show future entrepreneurs that it is possible to become highly successful businesses with hard work, determination and a willingness to succeed.
The Awards attract the cream of Asian entrepreneurs domiciled in the UK and companies who wish to target this lucrative market. With a guest list resembling the Who’s Who of Asian entrepreneurs, the Asian Business Award dinners are like no other events in the social and business calendar. With over 800 plus people attending the awards bring together Britain’s most high-profile and affluent Asian business moguls with an eclectic guest list of politicians, film stars, sporting celebrities and key influencers within the community.
This and former governments have recognised these Awards and the contribution these entrepreneurs make to the UK’s economy with previous chief guests including the Prince of Wales, Tony Blair, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Theresa May, Vince Cable, Sadiq Khan, David Milliband to mention a few.
