Business award plans underway
AS our businesses continue to excel across the nation it’s time for local businesses to prepare to be recognised in 2011 on a local level.
This month, the Warwick Chamber of Commerce president John Randall said they would appoint their Awards Committee to start preparations and planning for the 2011 Business Excellence Awards.
Next year’s awards will be held in June and there will be some changes to the business categories in 2011 to make the judging fairer, and the Chamber expects a bumper number of entries.
For the past six years the Heritage Building Society has put up their hand for sponsorship and will continue to do so next year for gold sponsorship.
“Heritage has always had a strong brand in Warwick and it’s good to see that they are supporting local business in a major way,” Mr Randall said.
Last year, there were more than 120 nominations for the awards, with over 300 guests at the award’s dinner.
“I expect that nominations will be up in 2011 due to improvements in our promotion for the event, and we will be adjusting the various entry categories to better reflect the modern Warwick business community and environment,” Mr Randall said.
