Gold Coast businesses urged to nominate

Written on the 16 April 2014 by Marshall Hall

The organisers Gold Coast’s most important business awards are now calling for entries for the 2014 honours.

Ian Cousins, the president of the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards, said the committee behind the awards were proud to be celebrating their 19th year of operation and was urging new businesses to get involved.

“Our winners represent the cream of the crop when it comes to businesses in the tourism capital of Australia,’’ said Mr Cousins.

“The quality of our winners are world class and we are always looking to find more businesses to honour.

“Our previous winners have included the likes of international boat builder Riviera, international earth moving manufacturer Digga, fast growing coffee franchisor Zaraffa’s, and international marina builder Superior.”

The awards are divided into 10 categories and there is a category for every type of business, regardless of their size or stage of development.

Six monthly awards ceremonies are held through May and October, with the annual awards winners including the prestigious Business of the Year award being announced at a black tie gala evening in November.

Entries for the May awards are due on May 1.

Mr Cousins said the awards, which were now considered the Gold Coast’s most comprehensive and prestigious business honours, were growing from strength to strength.

“It really is amazing when you look back at how much these awards have grown and you also look at the amazing companies that have been winners.

“These awards really highlight how strong and diverse our business community is on the Gold Coast.”

Mr Cousins urged more businesses to get involved in the 2014 awards.

Sponsors include City of Gold Coast, Suncorp Bank, Virgin Australia, AusIndustry, OntheNet, Griffith University, Regional Development Australia Gold Coast and Gold Coast Airport.
