After much anticipation and excitement, The Good Web Guide Website of the Year 2016 was announced at The Royal Institution of Great Britain on Monday 21st November. It was a tight call this year as there were many excellent sites to consider but Bloom & Wild, the online and mobile flower gifting service, pipped all others to the post. Despite some of the evening’s key players being absent as a result of Storm Angus, Sam Crocker, Digital Director at the missiontm (headline sponsor) and Anna Bance of Girl Meets Dress.com were rooting for the winners.
Anna Bance commented, "I am delighted that Bloom & Wild has won. I have been following them with a keen interest since their launch and have admired their "innovation in the current flower-buying experience" - a traditional market, which hasn't seen much innovation in the past twenty years.”
Ciaron Dunne of Genie Ventures, one of this year's expert judges, kindly stepped in to announce the winners.
