Nominations open for the 2024 Bega Valley Business Awards

2024 Awards

Get ready to shine the spotlight on excellence! The 2024 Bega Valley Business Awards are now open for nominations, igniting the spirit of recognition and celebration throughout the valley.

The events is hosted by the Bega Valley Business Forum, the peak regional business body which represents five Chambers of Commerce across the shire including Cobargo, Tathra, Merimbula, Pambula, and Eden.

Back by popular demand after the roaring success of its debut in 2023, where the valley’s best and brightest gathered for a glamorous Black Tie affair, this year’s awards promise even more glitz, glamour, and grandeur than a Hollywood event. Last year 300 attendees raised their glasses to toast the achievements of our local businesses, and a staggering 900 nominations flooding in for over 600 deserving enterprises, which left the valley was buzzing with excitement.

Nominations are now open to any business or organisation who are doing great things in the Bega Valley, with 14 categories up for grabs. And here’s the cherry on top: aligning with Business NSW categories means that winners here don’t just stop at the valley; they can carry their success to regional and state levels, turning local triumphs into statewide triumphs.

But let’s not forget the individuals who make these businesses shine! From outstanding employees to visionary leaders and budding young talents, there are four special categories dedicated to honouring the people who put their heart and soul into driving our valley’s economy forward.
Nigel Ayling, the President of the Bega Valley Business Forum, sums it up perfectly: “These awards are more than just shiny trophies; they’re a tribute to the tireless efforts of our local heroes who go above and beyond to serve our community. So, whether it’s your favourite café that serves the best cup of coffee or that trailblazing entrepreneur breaking barriers, now’s your chance to give them the recognition they truly deserve.”
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to spread the love and nominate those businesses and individuals who make our valley shine brighter than ever! Head over to the nomination form and let your voice be heard.
