Official Launch of the Blue Mountains Business Awards 2018
In a celebration of outstanding achievements, the Regional Business Chamber is now delighted to officially launch the 12th Blue Mountains Business Awards in 2018 and call out to all businesses to enter now.
What are the award categories?
With the changing face of progressive businesses today, the awards are open to all industries and sizes, from a single operator in a home based setting, to online products and services, retail shop fronts, to corporations from Lapstone to Blackheath.
Environmental and economic priorities feature highly with gongs for businesses that promote sustainability, innovation and creativity. Those committed to social inclusion and creativity will be honoured alongside the largest industry in the Blue Mountains being hospitality, accommodation and tourism.
It is also the chance to recognise the faces behind the businesses with award categories for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution, employers, entrepreneurs and leaders of the future.
Amongst the 21 regional awards, ten winners will go on to the state finalist awards hosted by the NSW Chamber of Business.
Who should enter?
It is open to all businesses, ‘not for profits’ and social enterprises - you don’t need to be member of the Regional Business Chamber and there is no cost to enter!
This year there is a special call out to those who have never entered before, particularly new start up businesses, and be reassured that there are on line tips and links to help you complete your submission.
If I have entered in the past, can I enter again?
Experience matters and for all the entrants, finalists and winners from previous years, the Regional Business Chamber welcomes you back for a chance to measure your continuing successes against the best in your category.
What are the benefits of entering?
Previous entrants speak of it being one of the greatest opportunities to focus on ‘working on the business’ and not ‘in the business’. Many were amazed by how the submission process and opportunity of networking with other thriving business operators, guided their strategic business plans into the future.
All entrants receive a certificate and if your business is judged a finalist or winner, the gala awards events on 2nd November 2018 is just the start to public relations benefits that your business will enjoy over the years to come.
What do I do now?
If you have ever wondered about entering, make 2018 your year and check out the Regional Business Chamber website today.
Entries close: 27th August, 2018.
