What area does the Gatwick Diamond cover?

Briefly, if your business postcode is an RH postcode or you carry out your business in an RH postcode, then you are likely to be in the Gatwick Diamond and eligible to enter. The area extends from Redhill and Reigate to the coast, from Horsham in the West to Haywards Heath in the East, taking in all the major towns in the area. Visit to find out more about the sub-region, but please contact us if you would like to check your eligibility to enter

Who can enter an award?

Any business that operates or does business within the Gatwick Diamond. You do not need to be a member of any particular organisation. These Awards celebrate all that is best in the Gatwick Diamond

What does winning an award mean?

It means that you are the best! Winning an award will bring you kudos within your market and within the business community. However, winning isn't everything as we often find that those who enter awards have carried work to examine key processes within the business and so improved those processes

If entered for an award do we have to book a table?

No, but we would strongly encourage all Finalists to attend. There are a number of tickets which have been held back for the Finalists and their guests. But book early as these will sell out very quickly.

Who can be nominated for an award?

The nominee can be a person, a place, a department, a campaign, a business or an organisation - it all depends on the category that captures your interest

What category should we enter?

Choose a category that your business has excelled at or contributed to. It should reflect the main nature of your business

How will the awards be decided?

They will be judged impartially by the sponsor and representatives from the Executive Council of Gatwick Diamond Business

When will judging take place?

The closing date for entries is Friday 23rd November 2018. Judging will take place in December and early January 2019. The semi-finalists will be visited in January and early February and the three finalists will be announced on 14th February 2019, being put forward for the Awards Dinner on the 21st March 2019, when the winner will be announced

Will the winners know in advance of the evening?

No, but the three finalists for each award will be announced in advance of the Dinner

What is the cost of attending the dinner and how is it payable?

The cost is £125 (+ vat) per head or £1,150 (+ vat) for a table of ten for attending the Awards Dinner. This is payable in advance by credit or debit card or bank transfer
