The 2017 Peak Connect Carillon Business Awards are now OPEN!

These awards are regarded as the premier business event in the Bathurst Region and are set to inspire a new generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs.

This year, we’re doing things a little differently and aim to provide an enhanced experience for nominees, with the addition of a Finalist Night held in September. The Gala Presentation Evening held later in the year will then recognise the finalists and announce the category winners.

Across twenty one categories, the business awards recognise excellence in business leadership,entrepreneurship, social enterprise, sustainability, innovation, export, business growth and employment practices.

The Awards celebrate business in Bathurst and publicly promote and reward business excellence. The Award categories offer opportunities for each and every of the over 3000 registered businesses in the Bathurst region.
