February 03, 2015 - 4:24 PM

PENTICTON - The Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the nominees list for the 2015 28th Annual Business Excellence Awards sponsored by Britco. These awards recognize businesses and persons in Penticton and area that have achieved excellence in the community through their own abilities, efforts and initiatives. Recipients of a Business Excellence Award are businesses or persons that display a significant and sustained commitment to positive business development, economic growth and diversity within the region.

“There is an incredible mix of nominees this year,” says John Devitt, Executive Director for the Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce. “We have a great deal of businesses who have been nominated for the first time, and a number who continue to demonstrate excellence year after year.”

The Penticton Business Excellence Awards is the premier business event of the year, and provides an opportunity for all businesses in Penticton to shine. The 2014 event saw record attendance, and organizers expect the same to occur this year.

“The Business Excellence Awards Gala is an opportunity for businesses and individuals to come together and have an evening to celebrate and recognize each others’ accomplishments,” explains Devitt. “This is the largest event the Chamber hosts each year, and we make sure it is a fun experience and a great night out for everyone.”

The winners from this list of nominees will be announced on Saturday, Feb. 21, at the 2015 Business Excellence Awards Banquet held at The Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. Tickets are available by contacting the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce. This event will feature live music, silent and live auction, and much more, and is open to the general public.
