The Open for Business Awards are a great way to celebrate your achievements, build credibility and gain extensive media exposure for your community.
And this year’s celebration will be bigger and better. The Open for Business Awards will be joining the Small Business BC Awards, in our 15th year at the Vancouver Convention Centre on February 23, 2018 with over 600 industry executives, small business owners, government officials and media.
The Open for Business Awards celebrate communities that have created a business friendly culture, allowing small business to flourish. Launched in 2011, the awards are managed and delivered by the Small Business Roundtable Secretariat, encompassing four categories:
- Small Communities (<5,000 residents)
- Medium Communities (5,000 to 25,000 residents)
- Large Communities (>25,000 residents)
- First Nations Communities (all sizes)
Congratulations to the communities that have been nominated! Nominations for the First Nations category are open until December 15, 2017. Nominate a First Nations Community today!
