Annual event honors business leaders in Kitchener Waterloo

January 15, 2018 by  

The Business Excellence Awards Gala will be held next month.

As a presentation of the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce, the event is one of the most important networking events in the Kitchener Waterloo business community, and honors those leaders who have made a significant contribution to their area.

Awards will be presented in 13 categories, including Small Business of the Year, Employee Engagement, the Innovation Award, New Business of the Year, Non-profit/ Charitable organization, and the Michael R. Follett Community Leader Award. In past year, a nominee reception has been held before the gala.

The evening will start off with a cocktail reception and will be followed by dinner. Next, there will be the awards presentations. The gala will finish off with a dessert reception and after-party.

The gala is open to both members and non-members of the Chamber of Commerce and always attracts hundreds of Kitchener Waterloo business leaders. A local printing company can help out with invitations to an event like this.

The Business Excellence Awards Gala will be held at Bingemans on February 22 from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. Tickets are $175 for Chamber members and $200 for non-members, with tables for eight also available.
