Finalists have been announced in the 2021 Central Coast Business Awards from a pool of about 100 entries across 10 different categories.
The Central Coast NSW Business Awards recognise growth, entrepreneurship, and celebrates business success and resilience.
“These awards are a wonderful opportunity to showcase the ingenuity, strength and resilience of Central Coast businesses,” said Business NSW Regional Director Paula Martin.
“The past few years have been incredibly tough as businesses have been impacted bushfires, floods and now COVID.
“When we launched these awards earlier in the year, we hadn’t expected we would be dealing with the current lockdown.
“Like our business members, we too have pivoted and plan to announce the winners of each category at a gala event delivered with the same usual glitz and glamour on October 8 in a unique and exciting online ceremony that is safe for all our community.
With the support of Platinum Sponsor NBN Co and Premium Partner The University of Newcastle, Business NSW will hand deliver a full celebratory experience straight to finalist and guest homes to enjoy while they watch a live stream of the event, which means family, staff and friends can all join in celebrating successes on the night.
Winners of the 2021 Central Coast Business Awards will then represent the region at the State Business Awards to be held in November.
“Based on the calibre of this year’s finalists, I expect that our regional winners will again do very well at the State Business Awards.” Martin said.
