About The Business Awards

Griffith Business Chamber Awards is about celebrating excellence in business. Providing recognition and outstanding achievements of individuals and businesses.  It’s a time to acknowledge, encourage and motivate the business community, whilst gaining valuable and well-deserved exposure.

2018 was such a successful awards program and was well received by the business community. The awards night attracted 245 people and 30+  businesses/individuals who entered the awards. Our local winners went on to compete at a Regional Level secured a record breaking 7 out of 12 awards, then progressed to State Awards with Murray Cod Australia taking out the top honour.

The 2019 Awards night will be held on Saturday 20th July and guests be treated to a spectacular evening including a champagne reception offering the chance to network with a room filled with the business community, delicious food, an entertaining MC, as well as the awards ceremony itself where we will recognise and award the deserving winners.

Entry into the awards is by self nomination and provides an opportunity to review your entire business operations, evaluate your goals and objectives,  consider the area’s needing improvement and asses your vision or strategy moving forward.  The local awards will be nominated by members of the public.

Most of our awards are aligned with NSW Business Chamber, which means it provides a prestigious opportunity to elevate your business to the next level. If successful at a local level, you receive the chance to showcase your business and represent Griffith at a Regional level then hopefully at a State Level where you compete against the best in NSW.
