A new year, a new look and new sponsors for awards

Written on the 5 May 2017 by Gold Coast PR Company Consulting Hall

A Who's Who list of the Gold Coast business and political elite turned out in force to celebrate a new look, new sponsors and a new year for the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards.

More than 70 of the Coast's leading power brokers and their children turned up for the launch of the 2017 awards at the Coolangatta outlet of Timezone, the winner of the 2016 Gold Coast Business of the Year title.

This year the awards have three new sponsors, Westpac, Harvey Norman Commercial Queensland and Optus Business Centre Gold Coast. The awards' other major sponsors include City of Gold Coast; Regional Development Australia Gold Coast; Flight Centre Business Travel; Choice Homes; OntheNet; Griffith University; Gold Coast Airport; Pindara Private Hospital and The Southport Private Hospital.

The awards also have a new look, with the creative team from major supporter McCann redesigning the awards' logo and its marketing materials.

Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards president Ian Cousins said the awards had grown significantly in size and importance during the past 22 years.
"The awards have grown to become the region's most comprehensive and prestigious awards scheme and they are continuing to grow,'' said Mr Cousins.

"Every year the quality of the entrants becomes even more impressive and the array of industries from which the businesses come from shows how much the Gold Coast economy has changed in the past 20 years.
"These days many of our winners and our sponsors are household names in the Queensland business sector but every month we always receive one or two surprises when little known companies pop up to claim honours."

Mr Cousins said the awards had become an important part of the business calendar, so much so that they are now tied to the Gold Coast City Council's procurement policy.
