  • 2019 Business Excellence Award Finalists Revealed

    Kamloops – The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and MNP announced their finalists this evening for the 33rd  annual Business Excellence Awards at a special event hosted by the Kamloops Film Society at the Paramount Theatre.  Please see the attached list of all award finalists.

     
    Background
    The thirty two Selection Committee members have selected the finalists of each award category by scoring each nominee independently.  Scores were then tabulated by MNP.  The committees will now interview each finalist to determine the winners of the coveted Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and MNP Business Excellence Awards. 
     
    Winners of the awards will be announced at the Business Excellence Awards Gala, to be held the evening of Saturday, October 26, 2018. This event always sells out early, so the public is advised to reserve their seats soon. 
     
    Tickets are on sale now for the Roaring 20’s gala at kamloopschamber.ca or by calling the Chamber office at 250.372.7722.
