Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Business Awards

Sunshine Coast Business Awards postponed until 2021

While 2020 started off in a promising manner, COVID-19 quickly impacted our lives in ways many of us never thought was possible.

Initially, we had hoped that we may still be in a position to run the awards in 2020, but as things have progressed we come to the realisation that this year there will not be a lot for many businesses to celebrate - and that holding the awards would also add additional financial pressure to our valued sponsors.

So, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to not hold the SCBA in 2020 and will look forward to bringing them back in 2021 as we look to recognise the many outstanding businesses we have here on the Sunshine Coast.

Sunshine Coast Business Awards Management Committee, Chair

The Sunshine Coast’s longest established business awards celebrated their 25th Anniversary in 2019! The region’s most prestigious awards are designed to recognise business success throughout our community who excel in their industry.

Business Support

In this time of uncertainty please know that we are here to support our small businesses. The emergence and spread of the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) presents a potential risk to Queensland small businesses. While the coronavirus may not impact you or your business directly, it is important to be prepared – and be aware of your obligations as an employer or employee.

The Queensland Government’s website contains information, resources and fact sheets for Industry and Business – and their Workplace Health & Safety office is the best place to get advice about managing the coronavirus health risk. While it is understandable that there are many concerns, in the midst of this worldwide pandemic it is more important than ever for us to band together – and support each other, our vulnerable community members and our local businesses.
