Headline Sponsorship

When we launched the Niche Business Awards in 2015 it was to celebrate Leicester, Leicestershire and our outstanding local business community.

We’re here again in 2020, in the final stage of judging for our sixth annual gathering, preparing to take a look at some of the best in business, education, and individuals within the community.
