People in the communities of North West Queensland are set to find out the winners of the coveted 2016 EMO Trans Northern Outback Business Awards with judging now complete and preparations underway for Saturday night’s gala awards ceremony.
Over 350 people are set to attend the function at Mount Isa Civic Centre where 28 award categories for businesses and individuals will be announced, including the coveted Young Business Person of the Year and Business of the Year awards.
Determined through a comprehensive judging process coordinated by business awards partner Department of State Development, judges had their work cut out this year with over 150 converted submissions received from nominees from across the Northern Outback.
Commerce North West President Travis Crowther was looking forward to the night’s proceedings.
“The awards are always a great night for both socialising and recognising the stand out achievements of businesses and their employees in the region” he said.
The night features Hot FM breakfast announcer MC Carley Duffey, a roving magician and the Oh Snap digital photo booth.
