Back for another year the Yorkshire Asian Business Association (YABA) is hosting its third YABA Annual Awards Dinner. The event is specifically setup to recognise the contribution Asian business and their allies make to both the regional and UK economy.

The event will be hosted by BBC’s Tommy Sandhu on 29th September in Bradford and will entertain over 500 attendees all keen to hear which businesses will win a YABA award.

YABA Chairman Amarjit Singh remarked “Asian Business have come a long way and have traditionally punched above their weight both in terms of their contribution to the UK and the diversity of business models. All too often these business go unrecognised and YABA are delighted to be changing that through the YABA awards and our ongoing efforts to accelerate the growth of business across the region. We hope that the characteristics of success our winners demonstrated will act as a beacon for others, and go some way towards challenging perceptions within the region of what Asian business do. We would like to thank our incredible and diverse board, our sponsors and of course our members”.

After such high standard entries across the nominations last year, YABA’s President Ajaz Ahmed expects this year’s to be even higher. He goes on to say that Asian businesses are developing and doing things that haven’t been seen before with so much diversity and innovation and that it’s exciting to be involved in this celebratory event.

The judging panel is as diverse as the businesses that YABA expect to see nominated with Tommy Nagra, the head of channel development and partnerships at the BBC and Baroness Sayeeda Warsi amongst many others. The nomination process is simple and slick; it’s online and questions are easy but designed to make people think.

The evening is set to be a brilliant evening, bigger and better than before and with a few surprises up its sleeve including a performance or two from the The Band of The Royal Armoured Corps!
