Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family, will host a reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday 11th July for winners of The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2017. Around 350 guests will attend, including government ministers and representatives of over 150 companies.

The Awards were created in The Queen’s name in 1965, and have since celebrated the achievements of almost seven thousand recipients.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious awards for business success. Announced on Her Majesty’s 91st birthday in April 2017, this year’s winning companies have shown excellence in the following categories: International Trade (102), Innovation (57) and Sustainable Development (11). Additionally, there are six businesses which have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility), to recognise the important work of social mobility initiatives and programmes that specifically reach out and support people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

This year’s Awards recognise the success of businesses in a wide variety of sectors. Their work ranges from pioneering healthcare and green energy solutions, to digital marketing and laser technology. Recipients are able to display the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
