The East Gippsland Business Awards, brought to you by Business & Tourism East Gippsland, are entering their ninth year in 2019 and during their eight year history they have gone from strength to strength. The Awards are widely recognised as the most significant event on the East Gippsland business calendar, attracting over 100 applications, in excess of 20 sponsors and an attendance of over 200 at the gala ceremony in October each year.

The East Gippsland Business Awards provide a valuable opportunity to showcase excellence and best practice in local business. They celebrate business owners and operators who promote the best products and services the region has to offer.

For sponsors, the Awards provide a valuable opportunity to showcase their business and demonstrate their support for the East Gippsland business community.

For applicants, the Awards process provides an opportunity to review and evaluate their business and to submit their business as an applicant for a recognised and respected award. The judging process and the feedback provided by judges after the gala ceremony enables applicants to consider changes to their business model and operation which may increase their professionalism and competitive edge.

The gala ceremony, held each year in October, not only provides an excellent opportunity to recognise the finalists in each category and reward and promote the winners, but also provides a great social occasion and a valuable networking opportunity for all attendees.
