Chamber News, Member News, The Roccos 2nd August 2019

The ROCCO’s (the annual business awards of Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce) are now open for entry. The Rocco’s are Renfrewshire’s premier business event now in their 16th year. For the second year the ROCCO Main Sponsor is Paisley.Is, the destination brand for Paisley & Renfrewshire.

CEO Bob Grant commented “Thank you to all our category sponsors, without their support, the ROCCO’s would not be possible. I encourage businesses & organisations from all sectors to consider entering in 2019. Winning a ROCCO is a great achievement and competition is always fierce – the process we follow for selecting a winner is taken very seriously. Across the 17 categories we have something for everyone; from a sole trader or young entrepreneur & community group to well established SMEs and large corporates. You have plenty of time to enter the Rocco’s however please don’t leave it to the last minute. You can enter as many categories as you wish, and if you are planning to attend – please book early – the ROCCO’s sell out every year well before the event.”
