The Grand BAME Business Gala is back! Join the Diversity Business Incubator for a full day of celebrating Black Asian and Minority Ethnic excellence in business!

DBI Awards is created to be a respected establishment that highlights the great work BAME businesses achieve daily in Plymouth and the surrounding area. It is centred to meet this need and recognise, celebrate, and reward the success and commending improved business for BAME communities.

This year DBI are hosting a ‘Day Time Exhibition’ from 11 am – 4 pm (FREE for all to attend) and evening gala from 6:30 pm – late (£50 pp)

The theme of this year is ‘’Time is Now, Let your Actions Shine’’. This emphasis is on developing a positive, inclusive young demographic culture, where diversity is respected and valued.

The Awards are proud to promote BAME excellence in business and they will continue to passionately champion business equality for all. The award is done through recognition by their peers in the community. Since the event commenced in 2018, the event has seen a steady increase in attendance: starting with a turnout of around 75 people, the last award ceremony saw over 300 in attendance. According to DBI’s numbers, this year’s award is predicted to surpass the 500 mark in attendance, thus, conveying the significant interest within the BAME community to come out and celebrate peers’ achievements.

The objectives are:

  • To highlight the achievements being accomplished by BAME individuals and businesses.
  • This is a great networking opportunity for entrepreneurs attending as well as DBI itself to collaborate and forge new profitable business partnerships from this encounter.
  • To become the flagship awards ceremony for BAME business’ in Plymouth and the surrounding area.
  • To create a space where the BAME community can feel free to express themselves and celebrate their achievements; after the awards are handed out it’s essentially a party.
