Kitchener honors top businesses at gala

January 4, 2019 by  

The Business Excellence Awards Gala is taking place next month in Kitchener, as a presentation of the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.

Nomination for the awards was open to Chamber members in good standing who were chosen by their peers. Winners were chosen not only for excellence in business but also for making significant contributions to the community.

The evening will start off with a sit-down dinner. It will then be followed by the awards presentations and an after-party.

There will be 13 awards to be handed out during the evening. These include three for Business of the Year (companies with 1-10, 11-50, or over 50 employees), Employee Engagement, Non-Profit/Charitable Award, Young Professional of the Year, Service Excellence in Hospitality and Tourism, Innovation Award and the Michael R. Follett Community Leader of the Year Award.

This is an important networking event for members of the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce and it is likely that most of them will be bringing along their business cards to exchange on the day.

The Business Excellence Awards Gala will be held at Bingemans on February 21 from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. Tickets are $175 for Chamber members and $200 for non-members, with tables of eight also available for $1,350. For more information about the awards or the gala, call Dana Walton at 519-749-6047.
