We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for ‘Emerging Business of the Year’ in the Scottish Business Awards. Supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Scottish Business Awards are the most high profile and auspicious award a business based in Scotland could hope to win. Just to have been nominated for such a prestigious event is a tremendous honour; one that we are sure will help to bring Escape to the attention of even more people.
The ‘Emerging Business of the Year’ category is reserved for new Scottish businesses who have been trading for under four years. It gives recognition to the businesses who have worked hard to gain success since their launch, and who have ‘outstanding potential for growth’. It is a great boost to have been shortlisted, as it shows that we are not the only people who believe Escape has a great future ahead of us.
A Star-Studded Ceremony
The awards will be announced at a ceremony held on the 12th of November at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The night begins with a champagne reception, followed by an address by none other than Hollywood superstar George Clooney. Comedian and actor Rob Brydon will host the main awards ceremony, with Olympian and cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy presenting some of the awards and talking about his own personal journey to success.
The ‘Emerging Business of the Year’ category is new for 2015, replacing 2014’s ‘New Business’ category. Of those shortlisted, it was HR firm Hunter Adams who took the accolade. They have since gone on to be placed amongst the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2015, so we are excited to follow in the footsteps of another business who was won this award and gone on to receive even more recognition.

An Evening to Celebrate the Success So Far
To have been shortlisted for the Scottish Business Awards is a great reward for the hard work we have put into developing an exciting, customer focused business. We look forward to attending the awards ceremony on November 12th, and wish the shortlisted businesses in all categories the best of luck.
See you there!
