With almost 500 guests in attendance, the 19th of August was an exceptional night of celebrating success stories of the Western Sydney business community. Master of Ceremonies Ricardo Goncalves, SBS World News kicked off the evening to a brilliant start with prize giveaways followed by a great overview of Western Sydney as a key business hub and a positive economic overview of the region by NSW Treasurer The Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP.

The Hon Luke Foley MP, Leader of the Opposition and Shadow Minister for Western Sydney, shared his insights of small business and the importance of innovation before we revealed the winners of our first round of awards.

– Gina Field, Nepean Regional Security Managing Director

“The WSABE awards are a great way to showcase the amazing contributions of extraordinary people right across Greater Western Sydney. 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.”
– One Hotels and Apartments – Parramatta Mission

“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.”
– Rebecca Shaw, GWS Giants, General Manager Marketing and Consumer
