THE long wait is finally over...the best in business will be revealed tonight.
The winners of the Sunderland Echo Portfolio Business Awards 2012 will be unveiled in a ceremony at the Stadium of Light this evening.
The Apprentice star Katie Hopkins will entertain the sell-out crowd before the awards are handed out.
This year sees a number of new categories – export, medium-size business and leisure – and the return of a host of familiar favourites.
The evening will culminate in the presentation of our Outstanding contribution to the City award, followed by the naming of the Business of the Year.
