Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Business Awards

Sunshine Coast Business Awards - 2021

The Sunshine Coast Business Awards are back in 2021 and will be a celebration like no other this year, following one of the most challenging business years in living memory.

While the region has fared better than most, the COVID-19 pandemic definitely took its toll on many businesses, including causing the cancellation of the 2020 awards.

But the region’s most prestigious awards are back and will be officially launched at the Small Business Month Breakfast on Thursday 20th May 2021. Tickets are limited and can be booked by clicking here.

This year will mark 26 years we have been celebrating and recognising the many incredible businesses we have on the Sunshine Coast and we are looking forward to hearing all the amazing stories from everyone who enters.
