As a Moreton Bay Business & Innovation Award nominee and winner you can elevate your business, propel your brand and showcase the achievements of your business and team. You’ll stand out from the competition, attract new customers, gain the respect of your industry and peers, gain recognition for your team and win cash prizes.

Recognition for your achievements

This is your chance to be recognised for your achievements and hard work you and your team have put into making your business a success! This is an opportunity to have an expert assessment of your business and validate what your customers already know – that you are an outstanding organisation to do business with.

Just think of how good it would feel to walk up on the stage, being recongised as an industry leader and collect your trophy in front of a room full of your peers. Plus – you’ll also get to add the words ‘Award Winning’ to your business.

Exposure for you and your business

The Awards are well publicised providing finalists and winners with an opportunity to raise your company profile and reputation, showcase your business and impress potential clients.

All nominees, finalists and winners will be provided with a media pack (which includes logos and badges) to use on your marketing collateral.
