BEAs serve as long-awaited celebration

With over 130 people in attendance, the recent 2021 Business Excellence Awards (BEAs) was the celebration the local business community was waiting for!

Hosted in Copper Point Resort’s Quartz Room, guests had their photos taken as they walked the red carpet. There were drinks, food, laughter, live music and the welcome return to normalcy that we have all been waiting for.

Over 60 local businesses had the honour of being a 2021 BEA finalist but only 13 walked away with a Bavin Glassworks’ handcrafted trophy.
