Around 700 people attended the 2016 Courier Business Awards at our special marquee at the Apex City Quay Hotel.

The 2016 edition of The Courier Business Awards set the bar even higher, becoming the largest black-tie event ever held in Dundee.

The gala ceremony was hosted by TV personality Gyles Brandreth and staged in a special marquee constructed at the Apex City Quay hotel.

Michelin was named Business of the Year, while the Entrepreneur of the Year gong went to Insights chief executive Andy Lothian.

But the highlight of a wonderful night overall was the prize for Outstanding Contribution. It went to Thorntons chairman Jack Robertson, recognising his 40-plus years of service to the local business community.
