Established in 2008, the awards showcase excellence in business and the significant contribution that they make to the regional economy and community.

The awards provide an opportunity to step back from day-to day-business activity and make a valued assessment on achievements of your organisation and staff, as well as recognise staff for the effort they have contributed to your organisation.

Australian comedic entertainer Peter Berner will be the MC for the awards evening and will delight crowds with his intellectual humour and wit. Those interested in attending are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to secure their spot at what will be a fantastic evening of celebration.
