I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did to make the Suffolk Business Awards such a massive success both before and during the event. It was great to be back at Kesgrave delivering events again after such a long time! We've had very positive feedback regarding the event from the venue to the food to the service.

Please do pass our thanks on from everyone at Archant to all your teams involved in such a smooth and professional operation. We look forward to working with you again soon.
