October 11, 2017 by  

The 20th annual Business Excellence Awards Gala is taking place in North Vancouver next month. It is a presentation of the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.

The emcee for this year will be Chris Gailus of Global News. The evening will start off with a champagne reception where guests can network with their business peers. It will be followed by a three-course dinner prepared by Chef Joel Green, which includes wine. There will also be screenings of several short movies created by Capilano University Motion Picture Arts program students.

On the day, awards will be handed out in six separate categories and there are three finalists for each. They include Community Contribution, Innovation, Young Entrepreneur and Business of the Year.

There will be plenty of opportunities during the evening for those in attendance to exchange their premium business cards and to talk about business with their fellow North Vancouver business leaders.

The Business Excellence Awards Gala will be held at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier on November 9 from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. Tickets are $130 each and tables of 10 are available; parking will be provided free of charge.
