Awards gala will honor business excellence in Burnaby

October 1, 2018 by  

The 19th annual Burnaby Business Excellence Awards Gala is taking place early next month in the city.

A presentation of the Burnaby Board of Trade and the City of Burnaby, this event will likely attract most of the top business leaders and community leaders in the city who want to recognize companies that go above and beyond the average.

The evening will start off with a champagne reception where guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the finalists for the award,s and to talk businesses with their Burnaby business peers.

The reception will be followed by a three-course sit-down dinner and the awards presentations.

There are nine categories of awards to be handed out, such as the Burnaby Community Spirit Award, Business Innovation, Health Workplace, Not-for-profit Organization of the Year and Businessperson of the Year.

Events like this are networking opportunities and Burnaby print shops often have an increase in business card printing orders leading up to them, since business leaders need to know they have enough cards to hand out.

The Burnaby Business Excellence Awards Gala will be held at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown on November 1 from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. Tickets are $149 for Burnaby Board of Trade members and $199 for nonmembers; tables of 10 are available at a slight discount. For more information, call 604-412-0100.
