Businesswoman Nichola Howard has been shortlisted for an award at the Enterprise Vision Awards and needs your vote to walk away with a gong.
The organiser of Blackpool Business Expo has been named as a finalist at the North West's largest women in business awards.
Nichola Howard, 38, started Launch Events North West three years ago to showcase businesses through regional business exhibitions- with Blackpool Expo being her flagship event.
The businesswoman has been shortlisted in the Enterprise Vision Awards Small Business of the Year category and is one of 109 shortlisted candidates who will bid for fifteen top gongs through interviews and public voting, before the winners are announced on September 29.
Nichola said "It is an honour to be shortlisted after three years of growing the business from home. I am absolutely delighted and hope people will vote for us."
"Being your own boss can certainly be a rollercoaster but this Autumn will definitely be a highlight with our biggest event of the year, Blackpool Expo, and the EVA awards ceremony being held in the same week- closely followed by our first ever Preston Digital Expo."
"I'd like to thank friends, family and colleagues from across the borough who have helped me to grow Launch Events North West to the point where the business is receiving recognition from the likes of the Enterprise Vision Awards.
Voting for the awards launches August 14 and close Friday 8th September. To vote for Nichola click here. For more details about Blackpool Expo and Preston's Digital Marketing Roadshow, www.launcheventsnw.co.uk.
