Business people from around the region will gather on Wednesday, May 8 at Sharkies Leagues Club to celebrate the 2019 St George Local Business Awards.
Precedent Productions managing director and awards founder Steve Loe said there was "no doubt that local business owners and their staff work hard to provide the best possible service to their customers".
"That's why the annual St George Local Business Awards presentation night is always such a popular event," he said.
"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 St George 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."
Mr Loe said the high quality of all nominees had made the job of judging incredibly difficult.
The St George Local Business Awards are only possible with the support of major sponsors, Georges River Council and NOVA Employment and support sponsors, Ramsgate RSL and BxNetworking.
"It's with great pleasure that I congratulate all the finalists on their achievements, on behalf of the St George Local Business Awards," Mr Loe said.
"I would also like to thank the St George community for the huge support that they continue to show for their local businesses through the awards every year.
"Without them, these outstanding businesses would receive the recognition which they deserve."
