Preparations under way for the 2024 Bega Valley Business Awards

The Bega Valley Business Forum is gearing up to host the highly anticipated second Bega Valley Business Awards. Building on the success of last year’s event, this year promises to be even bigger and better, celebrating the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals throughout the Bega Valley.

Scheduled for Saturday, July 27th, at Club Sapphire, the black-tie affair will once again roll out the red carpet for 300 guests. The auditorium will be transformed into a dazzling spectacle, adorned in elegant black, white, and gold décor, setting the stage for an unforgettable evening.

Forum President Nigel Ayling remarks, “Last year’s event was a great success and received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Initially intended as a one-off event due to funding, the demand for its return was undeniable.” Without the benefit of last year’s funding, the Forum aims to self-fund the event this year and is offering a limited number of sponsorship opportunities. “This presents an excellent chance for companies to align their brand with this prestigious event, and we welcome inquiries for involvement.”

The awards encompass 14 business categories, such as Excellence in Hospitality and Outstanding Community Organisation, alongside four individual categories, including Outstanding Business Leader and Outstanding Young Business Employee.

Key dates for the awards include:

  • May 9: Nominations open
  • May 28: Nominations close
  • May 28: Judging commences
  • June 12: Finalists announced and voting for finalists opens
  • June 24: Tickets for finalists go on sale
  • July 5: Voting closes for finalists
  • July 27: Gala Event

Winners from the Bega Valley awards will qualify for the regional Far South Coast Business Awards in September and may potentially advance to the NSW State Awards in October.
