SoGlos is delighted to launch the seventh annual Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards, in partnership with headline partner Pro Global, with support from a roster of impressive category and event partners.
This year's event follows the unforgettable 2023 Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards, which brought a vibrant celebration of the county's dynamic lifestyle sector to Dunkertons Cider.
Proudly headlining the county's leading lifestyle awards in 2024, Pro Global (pro-global.com/join-our-team) is a world leader in specialist insurance, delivering transformational change and outsourcing expertise to its clients. With its roots in Gloucester, the company now has a global presence with offices across the UK, Europe and South America — streamlining and enhancing the operational effectiveness of insurance businesses all over the world.
Following the exciting entry, shortlisting, voting and judging stages, the Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards 2024 culminates in the live reveal of winners, being held at The Sub Rooms in Stroud on Thursday 16 May 2024 — with returning event partners, PR Production Services and compere Steve Knibbs helping to make it a night to remember!
To be in with a chance of winning, local businesses can put themselves forward for a diverse selection of categories, sponsored by a high calibre of category partners, when entries open on Monday 22 January 2024.
New categories for 2024 include Casual Dining Restaurant and Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year; Unique Stay of the Year, open to unconventional holiday destinations which are not hotels; and Health & Wellbeing Business of Year, complimenting SoGlos's brand-new Health & Wellbeing section which launched at the end of 2023.
