2013 Barrie Business Awards Finalists Announced!!

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Initiated by the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce and the City of Barrie in 2003, the Barrie Business Awards program recognizes the contribution of local businesses to the continued growth & success of our community. Each year the program begins with a call for nominations in June, nominees are interviewed throughout the summer, the panel of judges meets in September, & finalists are announced in October. The awards are presented in November, during a gala that has come to be known as Barrie's premier business networking event. We were very pleased that PowerStream Inc. and OLG returned as co-presenting sponsors in 2013, and we were excited to have Rogers TV on board as well. The list of previous award recipients and finalists is impressive; Barrie residents should be proud to have such diverse & compassionate businesses within their community.

The 9th annual event is planned for Wednesday November 13th, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Barrie, Hotel and Conference Centre, and we are anticipating another very successful evening! Tickets for the gala event are $100+HST per person, with an early-bird price of $95+HST per person for tickets purchased before October 21st, 2013. Cocktails begin at 5:30pm; the awards presentation will take place after dinner.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL NOMINEES & FINALISTS ON YOUR SUCCESS THUS FAR!
