Hollywood has the Oscars and the music industry has the Grammys – but for Penrith City businesses, the annual night of nights is Wednesday, July 3.

That’s the date of the 2019 Penrith City Local Business Awards.

“There’s no doubt that local business owners and their staff work hard to provide the best possible service to their customers,” said Precedent Productions Managing Director and Awards founder Steve Loe.

“That’s why the annual Penrith City Local Business Awards presentation night is always such a popular event.

“It’s a glittering event that gives finalists a chance to dress up and take a break so they can enjoy an evening of entertainment, good food, relaxed chat and celebration with their colleagues and people from other businesses from around the district.”

Mr Loe said being a finalist at the Penrith City Local Business Awards presentation night was an enormous achievement.

“It’s also a chance for business people and their teams to reflect on their successes with a fun night out,” he said.

“Making it to the finalist presentation is a great reflection on their efforts and everyone is always extremely proud to be there.

“All finalists in each category are announced, with their picture shown on the big screen.

“It’s heart-warming to hear the deafening cheers from the crowd as everyone celebrates the achievement of all the businesses in the room.”

Finalists for the 2019 Penrith City Local Business Awards were announced recently. Mr Loe said the high quality of all nominees had made the job of judges incredibly difficult.

“The Western Weekender, which has supported the awards as media partner for many years, will announce the finalists in each category with a special feature in this Friday’s paper,” he said.

“This is a chance for customers and clients to see if the businesses they nominated have become finalists.”

“It’s with great pleasure that I congratulate all the finalists on their achievements, on behalf of the Penrith City Local Business Awards,” Mr Loe said.

“I would also like to thank the Penrith City community for the huge support that they continue to show for their local businesses through the Awards every year.

“Without them, these outstanding businesses wouldn’t receive the recognition which they deserve.”

The winners will be revealed on Wednesday, July 3. A special wraparound feature will appear in the Weekender on Friday, July 12.
