The region’s business community celebrated the cream of the crop earlier this month at the New England North West Business Awards.

The 50 finalists attended a gala ceremony at the Gunnedah Town Hall on Friday, September 1, where the winners were announced.

Winners from each state-aligned category will now proceed as finalists to the NSW Business Chamber State Awards, to be announced at the State Gala Dinner on November 17, in Sydney.
