New Date Set for 2021 Quality Business Awards!

The Tamworth Business Chamber is forging ahead with plans for the Quality Business Awards, with a new date set for the official gala night after it originally postponed due to COVID-19 regional lockdowns.

With COVID-19 still a prominent issue across NSW, the 2021 Quality Business Awards will now be held on Friday 18 February, 2022.

Nominations have now closed in the 2021 Quality Business Awards.

As the Quality Business Awards moves into its next phase, Tamworth Business Chamber says it’s been impressed with the community’s support of local business throughout the nomination process. 

This year, more than 1400 nominations for over 650 businesses around the region were received – the best result for the Awards in the last decade, and a testament to the calibre and resilience of the Region’s business community.

Now in their 38th year, the Quality Business Awards are open to all industries and sizes, from a single-operator tradies, to retail shop fronts, professional services and the larger corporations competing nationally and internationally.

Innovation and economic priorities feature highly with categories for businesses that promote safety, innovation and creativity. Those committed to social inclusion will be honoured alongside one of the long-standing industries in Tamworth like hospitality, accommodation and tourism.

It is also the chance to recognise the faces behind the businesses with award categories for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution, employers, entrepreneurs and leaders of the future. The highly coveted “People’s Choice Award” will be open for voting once finalists announced.

Amongst the 27 awards, nine of the award categories go on to the Regional Awards. 3 finalists from each of these regional award categories will go onto the regional awards hosted by the NSW Chamber of Business.

Judging has now been concluded by a team of qualified and independent judges.

Finalists will be announced Thursday 14 October at 5pm via digital recorded event on Chambers Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin platforms.
