Celebrating the success of business in the Illawarra region
The 2014 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards celebrate the achievements and diversity of the Illawarra business community. In 2014 we have fully aligned with the NSW Business Chamber, allowing our regional winners in the 12 aligned categories to automatically progress through to the NSW State Awards November 28.
2014 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards Gala Evening - Congratulations to all our winners!
The Illawarra Business Chamber congratulates all the winners of the 2014 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards announced at the Gala Event on Friday 24 October 2014. “The Illawarra Business Awards gala event was a fantastic way for us all to stop and join together to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our local business community.“ Our local businesses and the hard-working people behind them should all be very proud. The 2014 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards was a truly regional celebration of business with seven of the fifteen winners based outside Wollongong LGA. Ms Murphy added “the broad coverage of winners from across the Illawarra region shows that businesses with a good idea, the right people and a lot of hard work can prosper wherever they are.”
After almost two decades of regional business award celebrations, the 2014 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards had a change of focus and format. This year’s Oscars style awards ceremony and the before & after parties gave the Illawarra business community the chance to celebrate and connect more widely. Ms Murphy said “people told me how much they loved the 2014 awards as they got to party with the whole businesscommunity.” The new award categories also means that twelve of the fifteen Illawarra category winners now progress through as finalists in the NSW Business Chamber’s Awards in November. This provides our regional winners with state-wide recognition and promotion.
“The line-up of finalists and winners showcased the strength, diversity and quality of businesses from across the Illawarra. We applaud all the winners and finalists who have achieved excellence and success in their fields.” said Debra Murphy, CEO Illawarra Business Chamber.
