Recognising the UK's Digital Entrepreneurs

The Digital Entrepreneur Awards celebrates the best digital talent in the UK.

Our expert judges recognise outstanding achievements in the digital industry, both hidden gems and high-profile success. Through four categories, the awards consider every component of a successful online business, from enigmatic leadership to forward-thinking development and cutting-edge creative.

The Digital Entrepreneur Awards are the longest-standing national tech awards, having recognised Britain's online offering for over a decade. Now in its 14th year, the DEAs have been a springboard to success for many of the web's pioneers, underlining their hard-work and innovation.

The formal, black-tie dinners will be held at the iconic Principle Hotel in the heart of Manchester city centre on the 22nd November. As well as a three-course dinner and champagne reception, the evening will include a speech from a leading figure in the world of business and, of course, a glittering awards presentation.

With over 500 high-profile industry leaders, digital experts and entrepreneurs attending, the exclusive awards are a great opportunity for exposure, publicity and networking.
