Lord Mayor’s Business Awards now open for entries

The 2014 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards is now opened for entries with a new award category to recognise local companies forging strong links with Asia and I strongly urge (insert local area descriptor) businesses to enter.

Launched by Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk on 21 May, the awards are now in their ninth year and celebrate their achievements and contribution Brisbane businesses make to the city’s $135 billion economy.

The international spotlight is firmly fixed on Australia’s new world city. The awards reinforce why Brisbane was chosen to host the G20 Leaders Summit in November.

A new award category – Doing Business in Asia - recognises businesses making an outstanding effort in building trade between Brisbane and Asia in areas such as education, energy and resources, design and property, manufacturing or value-added industries including accountancy and legal services.

The new category highlights Brisbane’s growing role as a business hub in Asia, a region which we share increasingly close economic, trade and cultural links.

The other major change for 2014 sees the Australia TradeCoast Award for Business Growth become exclusively for Small Business Growth, open to small and medium enterprises employing up to 200 people.

The Lord Mayor’s Business Awards highlight why an increasing number of decision-makers worldwide are choosing Brisbane for business, investment, study and conventions.

The Awards are staged by Brisbane Marketing, the city’s economic development board, and are the only awards in Brisbane to include businesses and individuals across all sectors.
Winners will be chosen by independent judging panels. They and all the finalists are raising the bar when it comes to innovation, collaboration, research and development. They are also representing Brisbane on the world stage.
The 2014 winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner on Friday 10 October, where they will join LMBA winners from past years.

Visit www.lmba.com.au or contact Brisbane Marketing on 07 3006 6200 for more information on categories and how to nominate. Nominations close on 18 July.
