Lord Mayor's Welcome Message

Lord Mayor's Welcomes MessageIn their 11th year, the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards continue to celebrate Brisbane’s dynamic business community by recognising our city’s talent, innovation and entrepreneurship.

In a small but tangible way the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards have played, and will continue to play a role in the evolution of Brisbane as Australia’s New World City. They promote the excellence, success, innovation and entrepreneurial flair that are hallmarks of the Brisbane business community. They celebrate Brisbane as an ideal city to expand, invest in, and most importantly, live.

The Lord Mayor’s Business Awards are an essential element in, and typify, the Team Brisbane approach being used to craft the next decade of Brisbane’s economic development. Great cities only succeed through strong partnerships between government, business and community. We are forging ahead with this collaborative approach as our guiding principle to deliver Brisbane’s long-term ambitions.

If you are thinking of nominating yourself or your business for the 2016 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards, I encourage you to do so. The benefits of simply nominating not only offer an opportunity to celebrate your achievements, but also showcase your business and the services you provide.

Tickets for the awards dinner will be on sale to the public and guarantee a great night of entertainment, with unlimited opportunities for networking with key stakeholders and clients.

I hope you will join me for the gala dinner on Friday, 28 October at City Hall. I wish all nominees the best of luck.
