Nominations are now open for The Business Excellence Awards, celebrating the best of Kingston businesses.
Organized by the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce, The Business Excellence Awards have been celebrating the best of the Kingston business community since 1995. These organizations are the innovative leaders and driving force behind Kingston’s vibrant economy.
“We’re marking the 25th anniversary of these awards at a crucial time for business,” said Karen Cross, Chamber CEO. “We’re encouraging everyone in Kingston to show their love and support for the businesses they value in our community as they recover from the impacts of COVID-19.”
The awards include nine categories, including one new category this year.
· Business Person of the Year
· Small Business of the Year
· Medium Business of the Year
· Large Business of the Year
· Tourism and Hospitality
· Young Entrepreneur of the Year
· New Business of the Year
· Social Impact
· Skilled Trades (*NEW*)
Anyone may nominate a Kingston-based business, and any Kingston-based business can be nominated – Chamber membership is not a requirement. Full nomination rules and tips from the judging committee are available on the Business Excellence awards website.
Nominations close Mon., Jun. 7. As last year’s awards were cancelled due to COVID-19, nominations received last year will be considered as part of this year’s awards.
The Business Excellence Awards are the pinnacle event of the Kingston business calendar. This year, the gala event will take a hybrid format with pre-recorded, live, and in-person components. The event will take place Thurs., Sept. 30.
