WSABE is committed and determined to celebrate this wonderful milestone with the business community – for the business community. We have re-adjusted our WSABE awards to reflect a concentrated program, reducing the number of categories to fifteen.
We would like to thank our sponsors and partners for their unwavering commitment to the business community. Thank you for your inspiring leadership. Even in light of this challenging landscape, we have already witnessed businesses realigning their business models and delivering business differently with a refocused customer experience and successful outcomes.
In line with the current Government restrictions, the official WSABE launch event will not be going ahead in May. Entries will be open online on Tuesday, 5th May 2020. We urge you to take this time to reflect on your achievements and enter the WSABE awards. The WSABE Gala evening has been postponed until Friday, 20 November 2020 to once again be held at the picturesque Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. The Gala theme is “Great Gatsby” and we all welcome a night out like no other, that celebrates business excellence, tenacity, resilience and success stories of the Greater Sydney region.
The 30th Annual Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) is pleased to announce its keynote speaker for 2020 is Minister for Foreign Affairs, Minister for Women, Senator the Hon Marise Payne.
