Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce

The Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce proudly launched the first Greater Port Macquarie Business Awards in 2007, as a way of formally acknowledging the growth and success of businesses in the Greater Port Macquarie region.


Each year local business and industry organisations are encouraged to nominate and enter across a range of categories and share their success stories; their achievements, their innovations and their people. Entry in every category is free and, in some categories, winners also have the potential to be automatically entered into the Regional Business Awards and the NSW Business Awards.


The annual Awards Gala Dinner attracts over 500 guests each year and has grown to become Port Macquarie’s premier social event with a reputation for glamour and glitz. Organza and bow ties sit comfortably alongside the business banter, as the best and brightest from across the local business community celebrate in style.


The Awards also offer the chance to put your best foot forward in showcasing your business and your brand and it’s open to all ticket holders, so bring your team.


Business plays a very important role in our local community and we’d love you to join us in showing our appreciation and gratitude to those that do the ‘daily grind’, from across a diverse range of businesses and industries, within our region.  Any business, company and organisation (private or public) that conducts business in the Hastings region, has premises or employs locally are eligible to enter.


Entries for the 2018 Awards are now closed.  Voting is now open and to vote click here.  Tickets for the Gala Dinner to take place on Saturday, 28 July 2018 are now on sale here.  Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to bring your team along for this premier business event and reward them for all their achievements this year!


What are you waiting for?  Pull out the party frock and join us on this wonderful evening!
