Business excellence was celebrated in Delta last Friday night at the 72nd annual Business Excellence Awards hosted by the Delta Chamber of Commerce.
Long considered to be the premiere business event of the year, the Business Excellence Awards gala is a high-profile, prestigious event for Delta businesses and individuals.
The event was held at the Tsawwassen Springs Ballroom and brought together the three finalists for the Rising Star Award, Community Impact, Small Business, Medium Business, Large Business and Business of the Year as well as dignitaries and other business leaders.
“The Delta Chamber Business Excellence Awards was a beautiful evening, a room filled with thriving entrepreneurs, engaged politicians and diverse community members. It was an exceptional event,” said Chamber board chair Rosanne Horner. “There were countless nominations this year, and the diversity of these businesses was impressive, especially the number of women owned businesses which were not only nominated but also finalists.
