For Immediate Release: Oct. 24, 2016
annual Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards – the premier event on the region’s business calendar – will be presented Wednesday, Oct. 26.
The awards gala will be held at the Delta Beauséjour Hotel beginning with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by the awards gala at 7 p.m. A total of 30 finalists are in the running for awards in 11 categories.
The awards include the People’s Choice Award which has been decided by the public via an online vote on the GMCC website. More than 10,000 votes were cast. New this year is the Inclusive Hiring Award, to be presented to a local firm that has gone above and beyond to hire and integrate newcomers into its workforce.
The awards program started this summer with a public call for nominations. A record 140 nominations were received. An independent judging panel of local business leaders selected three finalists in each category who will be honoured at this week’s gala.
The awards gala will be filmed by Rogers TV and packaged as a show to air next week. New this year is the involvement of BuzzLocal TV, who will stream the ‘red carpet’ reception live to social media.
A full list of the 30 finalists is attached to this press release.
