Building on our smaller, networking events, we come together once a year for the YABA Annual Awards dinner, established to celebrate and recognise the amazing contribution of Asian businesses make to the UK and celebrate how diverse our business are. The last two dinners have truly done this and we’re back for a third year, this year with the theme Breaking Down Barriers.

We don’t want to tell you everything, but The Band of The Royal Armoured Corps are a real treat and we can’t wait for you to see what they can do. There’ll be wonderful food and of course what we are all attending for, the presentation of the awards!

Why not nominate your business or someone’s business that you think deserves to win? Our categories are below, and you can nominate online here.

  • Emerging Entrepreneur
  • Food, Drink and Agri-Tech Business of the Year
  • International Business of the Year
