Enter the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards

COVID-19 Update

The Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards is recommencing the awards program from 1 July 2020. 

Five monthly awards presentations will be held in July, August, September, October and early November. Entry submissions for each month will be due on the 1st of the month. Should the 1st of the month fall on a public holiday or weekend, entries will then be due the following business day. The awards presentations will then be held on the last Wednesday of the month.

An annual awards presentation dinner will be held in late Novemer to announce and celebrate annual category winners and the 2020 Business of the Year. The format of this event will be decided upon later in the year based on government restrictions. However, we currently intend to hold an event on 21 November at The Star Gold Coast.

For those who have already submitted their entries this year, we thank you for your interest in the awards. We have your entries on file and will be forwarding them onto the judging panel for their consideration.

We highly encourage businesses to now submit their entries for our first monthly awards presentation in July. 

Some of the award categories have been modified, so please review each category to determine which of them may be suitable for your business.

Please do not hesitate to contact us directly should you wish to discuss in further detail.
