Two weeks and counting
The e-business event of the year is nearly upon us. The organisations here have all been shortlisted in the Computer Weekly E-Business Excellence Awards and represent the UK's elite e-business initiatives

UK E-business month gets underway in true style, with the climax of the inaugural Computer Weekly E-Business Excellence Awards. We are delighted to present the names of the organisations which have been shortlisted in each of the awards' 12 categories.

The overwhelming response we have had to the awards confirms the fact that e-business now sits at the very top of the corporate agenda.

The UK organisations named here represent the cream of UK e-business initiatives. Everybody is talking about e-business, but our chosen finalists are turning words into action.

All are already using technology to transform their businesses. They are slashing costs, delivering new products and services, addressing new markets and building new relationships with customers and suppliers. We congratulate them all for their pioneering work in the field of e-business.

All 36 of our shortlisted candidates have met our judging panel face-to-face. But there can only be one winner in each category on 7 November: 12 of them will be recognised as the UK's e-business trailblazers at a gala awards dinner hosted at the prestigious Intercontinental Hotel in London's Park Lane. And one lucky e-business maestro, picked by our judges to be Computer Weekly E-Business Champion 2000, will get to drive home in a brand new Lotus Elise sports car.
