Bridgnorth-based AMD Promotions has been named in the UK’s top Small Biz 100 by Small Business Saturday. The one-stop print and promotion shop was selected as a trailblazer in the official countdown to Small Business Saturday, which is now in its sixth year and takes place across the UK on Saturday 1 December.
AMD’s achievements and community focus were spotlighted on one of the 100 days running up to the big day, as part of the campaign’s mission to encourage the nation to shop local and support British small businesses. The 2018 Small Biz 100 are drawn from every corner of the UK and celebrate the UK’s 5.5 million small businesses.
AMD's Julian Brown says, “We were thrilled to be selected as one of this year’s Small Biz 100. Our spotlight day was Friday 28 September and we chose to pay our win forward and promote other small businesses we work with across our social media platforms. We even got a mention on Twitter by ex-Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis.”
A not-for-profit campaign, Small Business Saturday was founded in the US by American Express in 2010. American Express remains the principal supporter of the UK campaign and has attracted other high-profile supporters such as PM Theresa May and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, trending at the UK’s number one on Twitter at one point during 2017, and reaching over 115 million people globally.
