A PENARTH business recently scooped an award at the Wales Business Awards.

Wales Interactive – a publisher and developer of video games and interactive movies – took home the award for Digital Business of the Year at the ceremony which was hosted by Chambers Wales South East, South West and Mid.

Judges hailed Wales Interactive as an "innovative, exciting and a true digital company" and called it a "leading global company, flying the flag for Wales on the digital stage."

CEO & Co-Founder of Wales Interactive, Dr David Banner, said:

“We are chuffed to receive the award for Digital Business of the Year.

“Any recognition for the work we do is greatly appreciated so this award is really special to us.”

Penarth Times:

The Wales Business Awards – now in their nineteenth year – has more than 180 entries from across Wales, with this whittled down to 10 winners across the 10 categories, plus an overall Wales Business of the Year, which went to Rhondda Cynon Taff based Penderyn Distillery.

President of Chambers Wales South East, South West and Mid, Paul Slevin, said: “What a night for Welsh business.

"There was such a buzz in the room, and it was great to see so many businesses celebrating their success and all they have done to support the Welsh economy.

“The judges had an incredibly tough time deciding on the winners for each of the categories, which just goes to show the quality of the entrants this year.

“We wanted to do things a bit differently this year, and to crown our very worthy winners at St Fagans, Wales’ most popular heritage attraction, was truly special. The event wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the support of our sponsors, to whom we’re extremely grateful.”

This year, Avast Business supported the Wales Business Awards as headline sponsor.

Also supporting the awards were sponsors: University of South Wales, Welsh Government, NPTC Group of Colleges, CGI, Atradius, Euroclad Group, Aspen Waite, Metro Bank, Blake Morgan and Jardine Norton.
