Recognising & celebrating excellence in local business
Albury Business Connect and Business Wodonga exist to encourage, support and advocate for local businesses. Together, our vision is to foster the development of a world class business community in the Greater Albury Wodonga region.
The two organisations regularly collaborate to deliver customised programs to their joint membership base, and work closely to deliver the Albury Wodonga Business Awards, our region’s preeminent celebration of excellence in local small, medium and large business.
As well as celebrating excellence across several award categories, representing the diverse array of industries and businesses in Greater Albury Wodonga, the Albury Wodonga Business Awards also recognises outstanding people through several individual categories including our beloved Hall of Fame Award.
Pausing in 2022
Following an extensive review of the 2021 Albury Wodonga Business Awards, the Joint Board of Albury Business Connect and Business Wodonga (comprising members of both ABC and Business Wodonga) has unanimously agreed to pause the Awards in 2022 and return bigger and better in 2023.
In arriving at this decision, not made lightly, the Joint Board considered the lessons learned from delivering the past two awards ceremonies in the thick of Covid lockdowns and restrictions, and considered feedback from last year’s sponsors, entrants, judges, and other critical stakeholders.
Returning bigger & better in 2023
A pause will also take the pressure and load off our wonderful business community – mostly all volunteers – who work tirelessly to bring such a huge undertaking to life, and give the Awards Steering Committee additional time to introduce some exciting changes that will make the Awards simpler for entrants, easier for judges, and more attractive for sponsors to support.
Not all is lost in 2022
Although we are not going to have an Awards ceremony this year, not all is lost, as we will have an alternative event to celebrate our Greater Albury Wodonga business community towards. Save the date, October 14th 2022.
