As well as this, a special presentation will be made under the Lifetime Achievement category. The award is made to a businessman or woman who has made a major contribution to the city. Previous recipients have included bus entrepreneur Trevor Smallwood and award-winning architect George Ferguson.
The awards attracted scores of entries from businesses and organisations from across the Bristol area and the winners were chosen by our independent panel of judges which included Post editor Mike Norton.
Mr Norton said: "We are all very aware that we are living through some extraordinary times.
"There is no doubt that this is one of the harshest recessions in living memory but it is testament to our great city that there are still plenty of businesses in Bristol setting the standards for the rest of the country.
"It is easy to forget in these difficult times that there are still plenty of businesses which are continuing to flourish creating jobs and wealth in the process."
Mr Norton added: "Commerce and business has long been the heartbeat of Bristol. The successful businesses based in our city have helped to make Bristol the great city it is today and will continue to do so.
"We had some great entries this year for our awards and it's fantastic to be given the opportunity to give our successful companies and organisations recognition and praise."
The Post will publish the full list of winners tomorrow and further details of the event in a special 24-page supplement next Wednesday alongside our weekly business supplement.
