Following a three-course dinner, the awards ceremony began and was co-hosted by Judi Spiers, BBC Broadcasting and Patrick Phelvin, Echo Editor. After several category winners had been revealed it was finally time for Small Business of the Year. AnTech was announced as the category winner and Zoe Williams, Sustaining Engineer said “It was very exciting to be able to go up and collect the award on the behalf of AnTech! It was also lovely to see so many enthusiastic Devon based businesses cheering each other on”.
