Award organisers describe the awards as "a celebration of the success and achievements of the local community – the people and the businesses that work tirelessly to make a difference and contribute to the development of the city we all love. The winners are a true reflection of high standard and customer service as they are chosen by members of the general public".

More than 200 guests gathered at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Glasgow last night with the evening hosted by radio personality Gina McKie.

Organisers said: “We are honoured and delighted to have such great finalists and winners representing the city of Glasgow and enhancing its reputation nationally and internationally. The awards ceremony is a true reflection of the talent in Glasgow and we want to make sure that the hard work and determination of the diverse establishments and professionals contributing to the community don’t go unnoticed.”
