Nominations now open for the 2020 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards
Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner has opened nominations for 2020 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards, featuring a new category for business adaptation.
Cr Schrinner said the 2020 awards program would recognise businesses that have persevered during the challenging economic conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Now in its 15th year, the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Brisbane businesses and Brisbane’s businesspeople,” Cr Schrinner said.
“In 2020, the awards will shine a light on the tough Brisbane spirit as we recognise businesses that have showed resilience, perseverance and adaptation in challenging economic circumstances.
“For the first time, nominations are open for a new Award for Excellence in Business Adaptation, which will recognise businesses that changed and adapted their business model, regardless of company size.”
Cr Schrinner strongly encouraged businesses of all sizes to nominate, despite the challenges faced over the past six months.
“There are many Brisbane businesses, from large multinationals to community not-for-profits and start-ups, that have overcome difficult times through determination and ingenuity,” he said.
“We want to rally around these businesses and acknowledge their integral contribution to Brisbane’s economic recovery, job creation and future growth.
“By sharing stories of businesses adapting and prevailing, we hope to encourage and inspire other Brisbane businesses during our city’s recovery.
“Being recognised as an award finalist or winner can also help businesses regather momentum, make new connections and raise their profile to achieve greater levels of success.”
Nominations close on 11 September, with the winners announced at a gala dinner on 26 November. Find out about the categories and how to enter here.
