Last week, A World of Buzz was presented with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise at its headquarters in Goring-By-Sea.
The group, which is made up of three distinct brands – World of Books, World of Rare Books and Ziffit – was recognised for its outstanding contribution to international trade.
CEO Stephen Boobyer welcomed the Lord Lieutenant Mrs Susan Pyper, who represented Her Majesty the Queen in presenting the business with a royal Citation, and a commemorative crystal bowl.
Guests also included Sir Peter Bottomley, Conservative MP; Lionel Barnard, Chairman of West Sussex County Council; and Alex Harman, Mayor of Worthing.
Accepting the award, Stephen Boobyer said: “The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a huge accolade and I am incredibly proud of the team for receiving such prestigious recognition in the international trade category.
“When we started this business back in 2008, our ambition was to become the largest seller of used books in the world. We are now well on track to achieving this and I look forward to driving significant growth and expansion both within the UK and internationally in the years to come.”
