Almost 500 people came together at the Moreton Bay Region Business Excellence and Innovation Awards night at the Eatons Hill Hotel.

The ingenuity, resilience and tenacity of businesses across the Moreton Bay Region were celebrated during the gala 2021 Moreton Bay Region Business Excellence and Innovation Awards night on Friday.

About 480 people from the business and broader community came together for the event at Eatons Hill Hotel’s grand ballroom, shining a light on their achievements.

There were 58 finalists across 12 categories, after a record number of businesses from a diverse range of sectors were nominated.

The fourth annual awards program has been refreshed to reflect Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Regional Economic Development Strategy, with the introduction of three new categories – Businesswoman of the Year, Food and Agribusiness Excellence, and Advanced Manufacturing Excellence.

The Moreton Bay Region Business Excellence and Innovation Awards are delivered by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) with sponsorship through its partner Moreton Bay Regional Council.
