We did it – a double whammy at the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards 2019! Team Vantage along with 700 guests filled the MK Arena, to watch and listen to Presenter Faye Carruthers announce the nominees across fourteen categories, which celebrated business excellence in the city.

First up for Vantage was the Design and Creativity Award for “innovative design and creative excellence”. In addition to ourselves, White Clark Creative, Cygnus and WSA were shortlisted. On tenterhooks, our table was in uproar as Vantage were announced the winners. Despite the first-class competition, the judges chose Vantage, for the company's ability “to demonstrate how well they can translate a concept or idea and transform it into a reality”

The champagne was flowing, but the celebrations and the night, didn’t end there. In the category Entrepreneur of the Year, MD Matt Bowler was awarded the top prize. Faye announced that the judges had chosen a “truly outstanding entrepreneur” for his ability to diversify in the face of a recession and create not just one but two outstanding businesses in MK Scaffolding and Vantage Event Structures.
