Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence
The Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) is the premier platform for the Greater Western Sydney Region. Founded by the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce in 1990, this initiative will be celebrating 30 Years of Business Excellence across the Western Sydney region in 2020. The WSABE annually recognises outstanding business leaders and organisations who are actively contributing to Western Sydney region’s rapidly developing economy.
In 2019, more than 700 of Western Sydney’s most influential business leaders and professionals flooded into Rosehill Gardens Racecourse to attend the 29th Annual Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence Awards Gala. WSABE were proud to welcome back The Hon Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of New South Wales, as our keynote speaker for the fourth consecutive year. We look forward to engaging with our WSABE patrons in 2020 at the Awards Gala on Friday 18th September 2020.
Why Enter WSABE?
The Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) provide a unique opportunity to showcase the finest businesses and business leaders that the Greater Western Sydney area has to offer. Finalists are profiled at no cost through out all our digital and print platforms, including the opportunity to be featured on our website.

We encourage anyone considering entering to take the plunge, the effort and experience is absolutely worthwhile.”

“We at the Greater Western Sydney GIANTS were delighted to receive the marketing award at the 2016 WSABE Gala Dinner. Being part of the community of organisations associated with the Chamber along with those who attended on the night gives us a genuine connection with business within Western Sydney. The process in the lead up to the awards night including the nomination process was seamless and we were honoured that our marketing campaign won this award and can therefore be seen to resonate with the community in which we are part of.”
