2023 RIN Awards

The 2023 RIN Awards Gala Dinner was held last Friday night at the MECC. The awards recognise the significant achievements and enterprise that local businesses are demonstrating across seven categories including diversity, innovation for export, safety, outstanding leadership, community connection, champion culture and manufacturing excellence. With more than 350 people in attendance, it was a special night where we gather as a sector and collectively applaud the businesses doing great things.
