Our Brightest Business Champions

Come celebrate Scenic Rim’s best and brightest business champions

The 2021 Scenic Rim Business Awards are back and are shaping up to be the business event of the year.

Local businesses, community groups, members of the public, visitors, and family and friends are all invited to help celebrate local business achievements at the official 2021 Awards Ceremony, to be held on Friday 5 November 2021 at the Boonah Cultural Centre.

Mayor Greg Christensen said he can’t wait to come together with the community to celebrate Scenic Rim’s business achievements.

“We all missed the awards last year due to COVID-19 so this is an overdue celebratory and networking event that has been strongly supported with nominations from businesses across all corners of the Scenic Rim,” he said.

“A total of 65 nominations were received from 49 businesses across 11 nomination categories and the calibre of these submissions have certainly made it tough for the judges ahead of the Awards Ceremony.

“The passion, resilience, dedication and determination we’ve seen by local businesses in the last 18 months is inspiring and I hope you will join us at the Awards Ceremony to celebrate our best and brightest business champions.

“The Awards Ceremony will be a spectacular night hosted by media personality Sofie Formica, best known for hosting travel and lifestyle programs such as The Great Outdoors and currently hosting Afternoons on Brisbane radio station 4BC, with entertainment from local musicians The Inadequates and beautiful trophies produced by local artist Faerie Fluer from Tamborine Glass Blowing.

“Guests will be treated to a three-course meal created with local produce and prepared by Scenic Rim local and chef extraordinaire Samantha Savery, plus a complimentary glass of a local wine or brew, so you can expect a celebration of all things Scenic Rim on the night.

“Our Business Excellence Awards Ceremony is an event for the whole community with plenty of time to catch up with friends and network after the official proceedings, so get your tickets and get ready to join in celebrating the achievements of the region’s businesses.”

Tickets for the 2021 Business Excellence Awards Ceremony are available online now at $80 per person, with sales closing Monday 1 November 2021. Find out more and book your tickets at www.scenicrim.qld.gov.au/BEA
