Unity was honoured to be crowned Digital Business of the Year at the 5th annual Niche Business Awards held at the Athena Theatre on Friday 6th September; fighting off some very strong challenges to walk away with the award.
The Niche Business Awards is a prestigious event that seeks to celebrate the cream of the Leicestershire business community and this year’s ceremony proved to showcase some very stiff competition across the range of categories. Not least in the Digital Business of the Year category sponsored by Creative 62, which saw Unity pitted against Base 8 Innovations and LoyalFree. Despite the fierce contention, Unity emerged as victorious.
Speaking afterwards, Marketing and Communications Manager Ashley Mason commented:
“I am thrilled that Unity has won the award for Best Digital Business 2019 at the Niche Business Awards. This is a fantastic accolade and really sets us apart in the Leicestershire business community. The whole team works very hard for all of our clients and they deliver fantastic results, so it’s great to be recognised for our efforts and ideas. It’s awards like this that helps keep us pushing forward and bringing exciting new ideas to the table.”
Managing Director Pete Frost commented:
“It’s a real honour to be selected as the Best Digital Business 2019. One of the things about the Niche Awards is the list of business nominated each year seems to get stronger, which is a testament to the Leicestershire business community as a whole. Being picked out of the competition shows just how hard the team has worked this year. It’s a really proud moment for Unity!”
Themes surrounding the Niche Awards is always guaranteed to turn heads and this year’s theme ‘Arabian Nights’ did not disappoint, showcasing the vibrancy and the talents of Creative Edge Agency and Flambe Circus.
After a warm welcome by Jenny Cross of Cross Productions, this year’s awards sponsored by Paradigm Wills and Legal Services got underway; kicking things off with a very special award for ‘Young Champion’, Kian Deacy.
