Exciting News for the Sunshine Coast Excellence in Business Awards 2007

Organisers of the prestigious Sunshine Coast Excellence in Business Awards have welcomed an exciting offer from Seven Sunshine Coast to record and televise the Awards' Gala Presentation Dinner this year.
Seven Sunshine Coast, as part of their ongoing commitment to the local community, will record the one hour special at the Awards ceremony now scheduled for the new date of Friday, 2nd November 2007.

This regionally significant event will then be televised on Wednesday, 5th December at 7.30pm.  With such a prime time position for this show, it is a true testament to the quality of the Sunshine Coast Excellence in Business Awards 2007.

These Awards which recognise and celebrate the efforts and achievements of the Sunshine Coast business community were first introduced 13 years ago and, each year, continue to strengthen and prosper. 

Gillian Taylor, President of the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce, is confident that the 2007 Awards will again bring out the best in business and is encouraging Sunshine Coast business owners to either self-nominate or to nominate another business of their choice.

'This year's Awards include both business and individual categories and have been designed to best reflect how the Sunshine Coast does business,' said Ms Taylor.

'There has been exhaustive process to refine the business categories and it's exciting that a new category of Entrepreneurial Business is now included in the program."

"This Award is open to businesses of all types which can demonstrate entrepreneurial activities and an ability to innovate."

"A number of other categories have also received a change to their names and focus to provide all nominees with the 'best fit' for their business."

Nominations for the Excellence in Business Awards are currently open with entry kits available on the Chamber's website at or by contacting the Chamber directly on 5443 5661.  Entries closing date has been extended to 5.00pm on Friday 27 July, 2007.
