Illawarra Business Award Finalists For 2021 Announced

And Spoiler Alert!! We're one of them!

 

Well, THIS is exciting. 

This week Business Illawarra announced the finalists of the Illawarra Business Awards for 2021. 

And we’re super proud to be part of this amazing list of local businesses. 

The Illawarra Business Awards celebrate the achievements of businesses and business leaders across the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and the Southern Highlands. 

After such a wild couple of years – yes, bushfires and global pendemic, we’re lookin’ at you – it really fills our cup to be nominated alongside these other local businesses. 

Winners will be announced at a gala dinner to be held at WIN Stadium on 19 November – we’re crossing our fingers life will have returned to some level of normal by then, cos’ we are more than ready to celebrate with the local business community! [and we want to buy a new frock]

Here’s a list of finalists – be sure to give them some love! Congratulations everyone and good luck!
