2024 Gippsland Business Awards Finalists Announced

July 4, 2024

A diverse group of 46 businesses from across Gippsland will be competing for the 2024 Federation University Gippsland Business Awards.

Graeme Sennett, Chairperson of the Gippsland Business Awards committee, expressed his admiration for the owners and operators of the array of entrants that have entered the competition to become this year’s finalists.

This week, the finalists were unveiled, with 46 businesses securing their spots across 12 industry and specialist categories.

“The variety of finalists has once again left us in awe,” said Mr. Sennett. “Entries from all corners of Gippsland demonstrate that our small to medium-sized businesses continue to establish themselves as industry leaders.”

The categories include Accommodation, Beauty and Personal Care, Business and Professional Services, Food and Wine Producers, Health and Well-being, Hospitality, Innovation, Manufacturing, Mechanical Trades and Construction, New Business, Retail, and Tourism Activities and Attractions.

The category winners will be revealed at the grand gala presentation event on Friday, August 30, at Federation University’s Gippsland campus in Churchill. The Gippsland Business of the Year, the top honour, will be selected from the category winners and announced at the ceremony.

“The judging process was once again challenging due to the high standard of entries,” Mr. Sennett commented.

He also recognised the many excellent entrants who did not make it to the finals. “They embody a robust and expanding business community in Gippsland, and we strongly encourage them to participate again in the future.”

Mr. Sennett noted that this year marks the 26th year of the awards. “We take pride in having been able to acknowledge the efforts and hard work of so many, as we have celebrated business excellence in Gippsland for over a quarter of a century,” he stated. “We look forward to recognising and honouring all our finalists at our awards evening, Gippsland’s premier business event.
