Northern Rivers annual night of nights for business

THE annual Regional Business Awards is breaking records with 85 finalists across 19 categories and close to 500 people expected to attend.

Northern Rivers NSW Business Chamber regional manager John Murray said he was confident this year's finalists had the potential to win at state level.

"We've had a record number of finalists, a record number of submissions," he said.

"We'll have as many as nine of our category winners becoming eligible to flow through to the state awards.

"We're very confident we've got some stand out businesses up here who we think can hold their own against the state."

The Northern Rivers Regional Business Awards is a black tie, ticket-only event recognising and rewarding standout businesses.

It will be held on September 26 in the Lismore Workers Club auditorium.
