Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce

It is with great excitement that we announce the finalists of the 2019 Holiday Coast Credit Union Greater Port Macquarie Business Awards!

In achieving this status, a final score for each entrant  is determined, by combining the result from three sources;

  1. entrant submissions,
  2. public votes
  3. and a mystery shop.

This can result in some very close totals, which is why we take our judging process very seriously and aim for integrity, confidentiality and clarity in our rigid scoring system. To further support this, our volunteer panel of judges (who are all experienced local business professionals) are sourced from across the Greater Port Macquarie region and rotated annually. We thank them for their insight, tenacity and honesty.

If your business is listed below, you’ve made it into the Finalists circle…congratulations! Winners will be announced at the Gala dinner on Saturday, 27th July – get your tickets now and bring your team to celebrate!
