On Wednesday, September 21st, the 19th Annual Business Excellence Award celebrations kicked off in style with the Nominees Reception at the Pinnacle at the Pier Hotel. Award nominees, their friends and family, and Chamber members and guests, gathered in the Pinnacle’s ballroom to mix, mingle, and celebrate the announcement of the three Finalists in each of the six award categories.
Each of the finalists were paired up with a talented Capilano University Motion Picture Arts Program student, who will work with them over the next two weeks to create a short feature film on their business. All 18 films will be shown at the Business Excellence Awards Gala on November 3rd at the Pinnacle by the Pier Hotel ballroom.
