This year over 20,000 small and medium businesses were nominated, and it’s the winners’ excellence in their respective categories as well as their dedication and perseverance in growing their businesses that has seen them rewarded.

At a gala event in Melbourne, we announced and awarded the winners of seven national categories and an overall Business of the Year winner.
