Coquitlam celebrates the best of business

December 24, 2016 by  

The Business Excellence Awards gala is taking place next month, presented by the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce.

This important annual business networking event will start off with a champagne reception, allowing Coquitlam business leaders a chance to briefly discuss their businesses and to hand out digital business cards to their peers.

Next will be a dinner buffet, fun games and prizes. No doubt there will more chances for networking throughout the evening.

Of course, the main event of the evening will be the awarding of six business awards. These are made up of three Business of the Year awards: one for companies with one to ten employees, another for 11-30, and the final for companies that employ 30 and over. Others are Business Leader Award, Community Spirit Award, and Non-for-Profit of the Year. New this year is the Young Professional of the Year award.

There are several finalists for each award and the public can still vote on their favorites.

The Business Excellence Awards Gala will be held at the Molson Canadian Theatre at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on January 28 from 6:00 to 11:55 PM. Tickets are $125 for members of the Chamber and $150 for nonmembers. Tables of 10 are available and black tie is optional.
