The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that nominations for the Annual Business Excellence Awards (BEA) are open.

Nominations for the prestigious awards are open until Saturday, October 1, 2016.

This year 10 awards will be presented and award winners will be announced on April 19, 2017 at the Business Excellence Awards at Caesars Windsor.

Award Categories include: Small Company of the Year, Mid-Size Company of the Year, Large Company of the Year, Innovation Award, New Business of the Year, Pillars of Our Community, Professional of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Young Professional of the Year, and Tourism & Hospitality Award. Also included in the awards ceremony are the recipients of the Believe Windsor Essex and ATHENA Awards.

Since 1991, the BEA has become the premier event of the year, recognizing the achievements and contributions of business in Windsor and Essex County. This annual event brings together industry leaders and government from all over the region to join in celebrating the business community’s achievements. It has extraordinary exposure and prestige attached to it, and has become a must attend, sell-out event. The evening’s program holds an unprecedented reputation and explodes with excitement from approximately 1,000 guests as they gather to pay tribute to the award recipients.

The BEA looks forward to hearing this year’s Windsor-Essex business stories. For more information, including how to nominate a business or individual, please click here.

An independent judging panel comprised of local business and community people will complete judging. The BEA Committee is looking for judges and sponsors. If you are interested in volunteering as a judge or wish to find out more about the event, contact Marianne Burke, Director of Events, at
