Gala Awards night set to recognise Caloundra Business achievers
The 2011 Caloundra Business Awards undertaken by the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce and Industry are shaping up to be the biggest in its six year history with a stunning 20% rise in nominations this year.
President Bob Thompson said he was thrilled with the high quality of nominations received this year.
“Our goal this year was to raise the bar in terms of the numbers of nominations and the standard of judging, as well as the quality of the awards ceremony . We have certainly achieved that with over 100 nominations from across the Sunshine Coast.
“The venue at the Sunshine Coast Function Centre is fantastic and we are delighted to have renowned local businesswoman and professional speaker Carren Smith as MC for the evening. Carren is warm and engaging and a thorough professional, she will bring a whole new dimension to the awards through her association with many businesses from across Australia.
“The Business Awards are designed to highlight the important role small, medium and large businesses play in our local economy. 2011 has been a difficult year for business and these awards are our way of acknowledging the efforts of all local businesses,” Mr Thompson said.
Guest will also be treated to a stunning fashion parade showcasing local fashion designers, hair, make-up artists, jewellery and accessories.
“The standard of this fashion parade will be very high. It’s important that we support local creative industries and there is no better opportunity to do this than in front of hundreds of local business people,” Mr Thompson said.
The 2011 Caloundra Business Awards categories include Retailer, New Business, Professional Business, Manufacturing & Industrial Business, Eco Friendly Business, Franchise Business, Hospitality Business, Accommodation Business, Outstanding Customer Service Person, Outstanding Business Person, and the overall winner, Caloundra Regional Business of the Year.
