We have some exciting news – we’ve been crowned one of the winners in the Yorkshire and the Humber heats of the Chamber Business Awards 2017!
Rapid Travel Group, which celebrated its fifth birthday this year, has taken home the High Growth Business of the Year award, and we are now in the running for a national accolade from the British Chamber of Commerce.
Rebecca Anderson-Hall, Operations Director of Rapid Travel Group said: “The whole team is incredibly excited by this. We are so proud to have had a very successful year to date, and that’s all down to the hard work and ambition of the team. Now we can celebrate our regional award win together and look forward to the national awards.”
2017 has proven to be a big year for us. After securing £2 million worth of business from organisations within the area’s key sectors, Rapid Travel Group went on to become a winner of Dragon’s Den star and Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis’ Twitter competition, #SBS Small Business Sunday. We’ve also expanded our team twice this year, taking the number of employees from eight to eleven in order to accommodate for the growing demand for our business travel services.
Rapid Heads to the National Awards
The Chamber Business Awards, which are now in their 14th year, recognise the key role that local businesses play in driving the UK economy. The 2017 ceremony will take place in London in November.
Francis Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said: “Businesses are the backbone and driving force of the UK economy. Even in the face of uncertain times, they continue to show their resilience and strength – creating opportunities for employment, investment and growth.
“Our judges are always impressed by the high standard of submissions, and the calibre of entries this year was no different. The finalists in the Chamber Business Awards represent the best of this country’s entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and hard-work.
“The Chamber Business Awards are the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate our business communities’ achievements, to take stock of the outstanding performances of UK businesses over the past year, and to encourage and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”
