Business people from around the region will gather on Wednesday, July 31 at Sharkies Leagues Club to celebrate the 2019 Sutherland Shire 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 Sutherland Shire Local Business Awards presentation night is always such a popular event," he said.
"It's a glittering evening that gives finalists a chance to dress up and take a break so they can enjoy the entertainment, good food, relaxed chat and celebrations with their colleagues and people from other businesses from around the district."
Mr Loe said being a finalist at the Sutherland Shire 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 awards are made possible with the support of major sponsors NOVA Employment and support sponsors Sutherland Shire Council, Service NSW, Kareela Village, Ramsgate RSL, Sutherland Shire Environment Centre and BxNetworking.
"It's with great pleasure that I congratulate all the finalists on their achievements on behalf of the Sutherland Shire Local Business Awards," Mr Loe said.
"I would also like to thank the Sutherland Shire community for the huge support they continue to show for their local businesses through the awards every year. Without them, these outstanding businesses would not receive the recognition which they deserve."
