Being involved in the Exmouth Business Awards can have great benefits for category sponsors.

In particular it can help to reinforce a local firm’s expertise to the local community and the many businesses it serves.

That’s the view of John Grace, compliance and performance solicitor with Everys, one of the town’s best-known legal firms.

“When you have been established as long as Everys has in Exmouth, it is easy to be forgotten and just become part of the furniture,” he said.

“Evenings like the Exmouth Business Awards help us to remind people that we are around and available to help and advise them about all their legal needs.”

John feels that the awards are particularly important because Exmouth is a seaside resort.

“They provide an opportunity for the town to demonstrate the vast number of different types of business that exist in Exmouth.

“It helps to show that it is not all about seaside kiss-me-quick shops. A lot of business goes on here, all-year round.”

As in previous years, Everys is sponsoring the New Business of the Year award. It’s a category that the company is firmly behind.

“New businesses are the bedrock of all local communities,” said John.

“They provide the buzz and excitement in any town centre, particularly here in Exmouth, where so many businesses are being innovative and looking at new ideas attracting people into the town.

“And when they thrive, it benefits us all, as their profits often stay within the town.

“Everys solicitors has been part of the local community for many years and we look to support and guide new businesses through our specialist services.”

John said he was looking forward to this year’s awards.

“Yes, it is always a great opportunity to see the real Exmouth, which people may otherwise miss.

“The evening is a great networking opportunity for all businesses involved. It’s a fantastic social occasion with good food and a relaxed environment, which allows you a chance to encounter people you might not otherwise have the opportunity to meet.

“There are always some very interesting bow ties on display as well!”
