Prince George, September 12, 2017– The Business Excellence Awards Nominees Luncheon, hosted by the Prince George Chamber of Commerce, was held this afternoon at the Coast Inn of the North. The top 4 nominees in each of the 11 award categories were revealed to an audience of more than 260 guests in attendance. New this year, luncheon attendees were given the opportunity to cast their votes for their business of choice, which was met with excitement. “There was excellent turnout and support from the business community,” said Prince George Chamber President, Corey Naphtali. “We look forward to seeing everyone at the Gala in October”.
In the coming days, Chamber members will vote for their favourites during an electronic vote for 10 of the 11 award categories. The Hell Yeah Prince George Ambassador Award will be decided by an open online vote published through the Chamber’s Facebook page. Winners will be announced at the Business Excellence Awards taking place on October 21 at the Prince George Playhouse with doors opening for at 6:30pm. New this year, the BEAs will change to an exciting new theatre-style format, like many Hollywood award shows such as the Academy Awards. Guests will “ditch the dinner” and enjoy an evening of cocktails and appetizers, entertainment and excitement when we reveal the winners in all 11 categories. The celebration will continue this year with our official After Party, hosted by the Presenting Sponsor Northland Auto Group. Tickets can be purchased on the Chamber’s website or by calling the office.
