#On the 26th October the ebay for Business Awards 2018 were held at The Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, London. Ocer 1,000 inspirational businesses enteted the awards, with £5,000, a VIP trip to the Las Vegas and invaluable business support up for grabs for the overall winner.
Each business went through a rigorous judging process and these were narrowed down to 10 category winners who all attended the awards ceremony.
The Smokey Carter, from Manchester who produces world inspired BBQ rubs and sauces won the ‘Expert Seller’ category – a business that specializes in a niche product that they have created and know inside out.
Howard Carter, Owner of The Smokey Carter commented “It’s amazing to have won this award and have the recognition from a global business such as ebay”.
He continued “ebay was where it all started for us back in 2013 and provided us with a marketplace platform where we could start our business with very little funds and without taking huge financial risks.”
On the night each business was introduced with a short video showcasing their business that was filmed with each winner prior to the awards. They were then invited to the stage by Rob Hattrell, Vice President, eBay UK, given their award and each gave a brief speech.
Howard Carter ended by saying “We were just so happy to be there and win The Expert Seller Award. Families and Babies was a truly inspirational business and was well deserved.
Every business in the room were already winners in their individual categories and it was a pleasure to share the experience with them all.”
