This year there will a cou­ple of new awards in­clud­ing the Ex­cel­lence in Trade and the Ex­cel­lence in Re­tail awards.

Ma­reeba Cham­ber of Com­merce pres­i­dent Joe Moro said this year’s awards night is go­ing to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever how­ever there is still room for im­prove­ment in the fu­ture.

Mr Moro said the Go for Gold themed night aimed to en­cour­age busi­ness and growth within the re­gion and to im­prove busi­nesses as a whole.

“The awards is more about ac­knowl­edg­ing good busi­nesses and good ser­vice to cus­tomers,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one who has been nom­i­nated all de­serve to win and they are all win­ners to me.”

He said the theme Go for Gold for the awards night would also be the same theme for this year’s eco­nomic snap­shot com­ing out in De­cem­ber.

The awards night will be held to­mor­row night at the Ma­reeba RSL from 6pm un­til late.
