FROM tourism op­er­a­tors show­ing off Mt Warn­ing to the lo­cal chemist, Tweed busi­nesses are putting their best foot for­ward for the chance to be crowned cham­pion at this year’s Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards Tweed Shire (BEATS).

Busi­ness have the chance to cel­e­brate their achieve­ments at this year’s BEATS gala din­ner on July 28, hosted for the first time by the Tweed’s three busi­ness cham­bers.

BEATS or­gan­is­ers launched the awards at the spon­sors’ brunch at Seag­ulls Club this week, and en­cour­aged small, medium and large scale busi­nesses to nom­i­nate for one of the 18 awards.

“There are busi­ness out there that are ex­cel­lent in the Tweed and we want to en­cour­age them to have a go,” Tweed cham­ber pres­i­dent War­ren Pol­glase said.

“It’s go­ing to be an ex­cel­lent gala event and a good net­work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”

BEATS co-or­di­na­tor Rhi Brins­mead said the awards gave a plat­form to busi­nesses in all dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries to show­case what they have to of­fer the re­gion.

“The BEATS are truly shire wide this year, with a mighty col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Mur­willum­bah Dis­trict Busi­ness Cham­ber, the Tweed Cham­ber of Com­merce and the Kingscliff and Dis­trict Cham­ber of Com­merce,” Ms Brins­mead said.

“We have a vi­sion for the BEATS that it will be­come the most ex­cit­ing event on the Tweed Busi­ness cal­en­dar.”

Tick­ets for the BEATS Gala Din­ner will go on sale on June 25.

Nominations for the awards close on June 15 and busi­nesses can ap­ply for more than one cat­e­gory.

Judg­ing in each cat­e­gory will be un­der­taken by an in­de­pen­dent panel of ex­perts with win­ners au­to­mat­i­cally en­tered into the re­gional NSW Busi­ness Cham­ber awards.
