Lord Mayor's Welcome Message
Business is at the heart of Brisbane’s economic recovery and I am pleased to announce the 16th Lord Mayor’s Business Awards are now open for nominations.
In 2020, the awards will shine a light on the tough Brisbane spirit as we recognise those businesses that have showed resilience, perseverance and adaptation in challenging economic circumstances.
The awards will provide a platform for businesses to make new connections, raise their profile and share their stories. By sharing stories of businesses adapting and prevailing, we hope to encourage and inspire other Brisbane businesses to pursue their goals.
Despite the challenges of the past six months, I encourage businesses of all sizes to nominate. In recognition of this, the new HSBC Award for Excellence in Business Adaptation is open to businesses that have altered their business model in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
This year’s gala awards dinner and ceremony will mark an important occasion for Brisbane’s business people to reflect on the year that was and show support for the journey ahead.
Please join me at City Hall on Friday, 26 November to celebrate the 2020 finalists and winners.
I wish all the nominees the best of luck.
