Illawarra businesses contend for state honours

Thirteen Illawarra businesses and individuals will compete to be the best in NSW as finalists for the 2019 NSW Business Chamber Business Awards, which will be announced at a gala evening tomorrow night (Friday, 22 November 2019) at the International Convention Centre, Sydney.

The NSW Business Awards celebrates business excellence in entrepreneurship, innovation, export, business growth, sustainability and employment practices. The State Finalists represent the category winners from 16 regions across NSW.

A strong field of Illawarra businesses who won aligned categories in the 2019 IMB Bank Illawarra Business Awards have qualified as finalists in the state awards.

Illawarra Business Chamber Executive Director Adam Zarth said that it was a testament to the strength and ingenuity of the Illawarra business community that such a large and diverse local field will compete for top honours at the state awards this week.

“Fresh off a highly successful Illawarra Business Awards night, we have thirteen winners from our region going on to even further heights at our state awards,” said Mr Zarth.

“The nominations are a clear representation of the excellence and innovation of the Illawarra business community, which we should be rightly proud of. We’re looking forward to being there on the night to cheer them on.”

The gala evening will see a variety of performances featuring sparkling new star – Mitch Tambo, a modern country favourite – The McClymonts and other Australian favourites such as Thirsty Merc and Vanessa Amorosi.
