Nominations are now open for the 2019 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards

If you want to put your company on the national stage, nominate now for Brisbane’s most prestigious business awards.

Put your company in the spotlight by nominating for Brisbane’s most prestigious business awards.

Now in their 14th year, Lord Mayor’s Business Awards celebrate the outstanding contribution that businesses and individuals make to Brisbane’s position as Australia’s new world city and our thriving $162 billion economy.

Opening the 2019 Awards program, Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner introduced two new categories to recognise the achievements of micro businesses and social enterprises.

“In the spirit of supporting the growth and sustainability of Brisbane businesses, I’m delighted to introduce two new categories for those that deserve to be in the spotlight,” Cr Schrinner said.

“Two years ago, we introduced the Award for Outstanding Small Business, which became one of the most popular categories.

“Given around 88 per cent of businesses in Brisbane employ less than five people, the new Award for Outstanding Micro Business has been created to separately recognise the impact of these businesses that touch all of our lives.

“In addition, the new Award for Outstanding Social Enterprise will recognise businesses that are making a significant social impact, regardless of company size, by tackling social problems and improving our communities or environment.”

Cr Schrinner encouraged Brisbane’s best businesses and business people to step forward for a 2019 Lord Mayor’s Business Award.

“Many successful and innovative businesses call Brisbane home, and I urge those that are helping to raise the profile of Brisbane, build our economy and enrich our social fabric to nominate,” he said.

“Past winners have gone on to achieve greater levels of professional and personal success and make valuable new connections within Brisbane’s dynamic business community.”

Nominations close on 19 July, with the winners announced at a gala dinner on 18 October. Find out about the categories and how to enter here.
