Business awards gala returns to Guelph

May 1, 2018 by  

The Guelph Awards of Excellence Gala will be held next month.

A presentation of the Guelph Chamber of Commerce, the event is an important networking event for the Guelph business community and it recognizes outstanding individuals, organizations, institutions and businesses in the area.

There are a total of seven awards to be handed out this year, which include Lifetime Achievement of a business person, Community Spirit and Emerging Business. This year, two more awards have been added – Young Innovator (under the age of 25) and Community Innovator.

The evening will likely begin with a cocktail reception, giving attendees a chance to network with their business and community peers. This will be followed by a sit-down dinner and the awards presentations.

There will be plenty of opportunities during the evening for attendees to briefly discuss their business with their Guelph peers and to exchange their business cards. It is probable that many will be placing a new business card printing order in advance, then handing out their up-to-date cards when the event takes place

The Guelph Awards of Excellence Gala will be held at the Delta Guelph on June 28 from 4:30 to 9:00 pm. Tickets are $90 each and tables of 10 are available for $775. To learn more about this event and the awards themselves, contact Amanda Derksen at 519-822-8081 x223.
