The 2015 Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) took place on Friday 14th August at WatervieW in Bicentennial Park.

Guests glided across the red carpet serenaded with a string quartet by the Australian Youth Orchestra as they were greeted with a glass of champagne and invited to pose in front of the 2015 WSABE media wall which was camouflaged with the supporting and category partners.

The Gala dinner hosted over 440 Western Sydney businesses who were treated to chef specials and dynamic performances by Packemin Productions; Phantom of the Opera and Back to the 80s.

The fish centrepieces were a conversation piece as guests were asked to come up with a name for their fish and the WSABE Committee formed a judging panel to announce the winner.

The Gala Dinner featured a live Instagram and Twitter wall displaying all #WSABE2015 posts.

Halfway through the night, the hashtag was a trending topic in Australia ranking number 5 according to a number of trend research accounts including Trends In Australia.

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

“ The WSABE award is not one to be on a mantle, the flow on effect and power of the award certainly has surpassed my expectations, with continued personal and business growth. From an avid awards goer, the WSABE awards, I would have to say are the pinnacle of any awards program for business success”
– Gina Field, Nepean Regional Security Managing Director

We are very proud as a non-profit organisation to be awarded finalist in the Excellence of Social Enterprise category for 2017. We look forward to continuing to promote the great work that is being done in the community sector and all who work in it. I commend WSABE for providing a platform where Greater Western Sydney businesses and community groups can come together and be celebrated.”

“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.”
