Griffith University

Sponsor of IT and Digital Business Award

"Griffith University is proud to have been a sponsor of the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards for almost a decade. We believe the Awards are a fantastic initiative and provide a wonderful opportunity to showcase and celebrate the incredible business innovation and performances that are taking place across a range of sectors, as well as the exceptional talent and business leadership that lies behind this. We see our sponsorship of these awards to be in keeping with Griffith's tradition of engaging the communities we serve. We are committed to the Gold Coast region, and to contributing to its economic and social growth and prosperity.

The Awards provide valuable networking opportunities for both sponsors and recipients. It is also a unique vehicle through which to find out more about local businesses and forge new connections.

As the region's only comprehensive University, sponsoring the IT, Knowledge Management and Digital Services Award was an ideal fit for us given our commitment to the creation and dissemination of knowledge. We believe in a remarkable tomorrow, in doing our best and supporting others to do theirs. Our support for business innovation and excellence in the Gold Coast region through (but not limited to) these Awards is an important part of our commitment to community engagement".

The Neumann Group

Sponsor of Manufacturing Award

"The Neumann Group, as a family-owned business, understand the importance of supporting and celebrating local businesses. That's why we are proud to sponsor the local GCBEA and commend the organisers for their efforts in recognising the achievements of the community.

From our own experience, we can attest to the benefits of participating in such awards programs. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase your business, gain recognition for hard work and dedication, and network with other local entrepreneurs. The awards provide a platform to tell your story and share your successes, which can help to build your brand and reputation within the community.

The exposure generated through the awards can also lead to new business opportunities, partnerships, and collaborations. It's a great way to get your name out there and connect with potential customers or clients who may not have been aware of your business before. Furthermore, being recognised by your peers and customers can be incredibly rewarding and motivating, giving you and your team a sense of pride and accomplishment.

We encourage all local businesses to consider participating in future awards programs and again commend the GCBEA organisers for their ongoing commitment to supporting and celebrating local entrepreneurship."
