Nominations for the 2021 Quality Business Awards have now closed and we will soon announce the finalists

What are the award categories?

With the changing face of progressive businesses today, the awards are open to all industries and sizes, from a single operator in a home-based setting, to retail shop fronts, tradies and the larger corporations competing nationally and internationally.

Innovation and economic priorities feature highly with awards for businesses that promote safety, innovation and creativity. Those committed to social inclusion will be honoured alongside one of the long-standing industries in Tamworth, being hospitality, accommodation and tourism.

It is also the chance to recognise the faces behind the businesses with award categories for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution, employers, entrepreneurs and leaders of the future.

In 2021 there will be new awards with hair and beauty separated into two customer service categories and a dedicated pet services award.

Amongst the 29 awards, nine of the award categories go on to the Regional Awards. 3 finalists from each of these regional award categories will go onto the regional awards hosted by the NSW Chamber of Business.
