London, UK (PRWEB) April 6, 2007

Widget UK Ltd, a leading supplier of mobile technology and accessories, today announced that it has been named Service Business of the Year at the prestigious National Fast Growth Business Awards and has also won best stand at Channel Expo 2007.

The Fast Growth Business Awards are organised by Crimson Business in conjunction with Growing Business magazine and recognise and reward great businesses and the people running them on a national scale. The Service Business of the Year category is awarded the company that demonstrates the best plans for future development as well as a substantial year on year turnover and profit, growing market share and a strong brand.

The judges were overwhelmed by Widget UK's entry. Ian Wallis, editor of Growing Business magazine and Growingbusiness.co.uk comments:

"The competition was fierce making Widget UK's achievement all the more impressive. The company has been superbly managed and is earmarked to be one of the household names of the future."

The Channel Expo best stand award was voted for by exhibitors and visitors to the show. Widget was short-listed with two other stands, Quiet PC and Entanet, but came out on top, proving to have the best products, display and staff to take the award.

Mark Needham, Managing Director Widget UK, commented, "To win two prestigious awards in just two days is an amazing achievement. This along with finishing 34th in Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 Fastest Growing Private Company annual league table has shown how far Widget has progressed in the last year, becoming one of the top value added distributors in the country."

Needham continued, "With our new signing to become exclusive UK distributor for Datawind's Pocketsurfer, we look forward to more growth and a successful 2007."
