New Sydney City region for business awards

City businesses and emerging entrepreneurs will have the chance to raise their profile, expand their network and showcase their talents on a state-wide stage with a new City of Sydney-sponsored awards program.

The City has joined forces with the NSW Business Chamber to create a new Sydney City region in the chamber’s prestigious annual Business Awards, which recognise outstanding business achievement across the state.

The winners of the regional awards, to be held at Sydney Town Hall in July, will go on to the state finals in November. The City is also sponsoring the state-wide award for Excellence in Small Business.

Nominations will be open from 30 April 2015.

In the meantime, for more information, please contact Tina Lonergan:
