Established in 1986, the Geelong Business Excellence Awards recognise organisations that have achieved business excellence in the Geelong region. The Awards are the oldest continuously running and most prestigious business awards programs in Australia, and, as such, provide a significant recognition and celebration of business achievement and performance.
In 2019, for the second year we are delighted to partner with Deakin University rated among the top universities in the world, as our naming rights sponsor.
We also welcome and acknowledge our new and returning sponsors – some of whom have been involved in the Awards for more than 20 years. While the local business sector contributes significantly to the economic and social wellbeing of our community, the Awards provide an excellent opportunity to recognise and celebrate business excellence in the Geelong region.
The Awards program will finish with one of the biggest Gala Dinner Ceremony nights on the Geelong calendar. This Gala evening on Thursday 25 July will allow you and your staff to celebrate what it means to be considered among ‘the best of the best’ in the Geelong region.
The Awards would not exist without the support and contribution of our sponsors and judges. Our judging panel, which consists of experienced business leaders, also includes many past winners of the Awards.
The Awards process is one of the most time and cost effective, insightful and thorough forms of business development you will ever undertake.
We hope you will join us on the journey to business excellence and recognition by entering the Awards.
