South Holland Business Awards

The South Holland Business Awards (part of the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce) is an annual awards programme celebrating the best of local businesses in the South Holland region. Their new website invites businesses to submit applications for the various awards, purchase tickets for the awards ceremony and for potential awards sponsors to get in touch to sponsor awards.

Requirements

Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce wanted a fresh website which attracted new visitors to the awards and encourage them to get involved either by applying for an award or sponsoring an award.

The requirements included

  • A fresh look and feel to the design reflecting the excitement of an awards ceremony
  • A new application process to apply for a business award. The application needed to be easy and seamless enough so that  applicants didn't abandon their application halfway through the process
  • Detailed content and images about each of the awards and opportunities to sponsor each award
  • Umbraco CMS allowing staff to quickly update content and images without disturbing the look and feel of the site
  • Hosting for the website and links to the existing Chamber of Commerce website in order to purchase tickets etc.

Solution

The new website is an exciting and inviting environment to read about the South Holland Business Awards and get involved in the 2018 ceremony. Visitors can apply for an award or sponsor an award and after the ceremony visitors can revisit the website to get an update of who won each award.

Attached to the website is an Umbraco content management system allowing Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce staff to amend content and images quickly without HTML and coding knowledge. Appointed administrators can create, upload and delete site pages.The Umbraco system also includes a comprehensive user management system, allowing Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce to control who they wish to have editing rights on the system.

In addition, PSP-IT have provided a hosting solution for the website and links to the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce website.

Benefits

The completed website is an attractive shop window for the 2018 South Holland Business Awards with plenty of information about the awards categories and how to enter an award. The website invites potential sponsors to get in touch with Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and includes contact forms for both awards applications and sponsorship enquiries. 

The website is easily updatable by Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce staff using the Umbraco content management system attached to the website. They can easily change and amend content and images - essential for an event based website  - allowing the team to publish the winners of awards and an image gallery after the event. The website can then be used as a reference throughout the year and then updated in the lead up to the next event.
