The Business Examiner News Group produces a series of Awards Gala events across British Columbia. They provide premium networking opportunities for attendees, sponsors and nominated businesses to connect and grow their organizations.

The intent is to provide a platform for organizations to showcase who they are to the region’s business community, the projects they’ve completed, and for participants to network with other business leaders and ultimately drive more sales, new hires and foster new connections.

In addition, the awards given are given by a panel of 3rd party judges, ensuring that the marketing value of these awards are legitimate. There is no social media voting or “gaming” the system. The individuals responsible for scoring the nominees across the events are industry professionals with decades of experience in their respective fields.

There are two event series, regional Business Excellence Awards, and regional Commercial Building Awards.

Business Excellence Awards highlight organizations in a specific geographic area, currently these include: Vancouver Island, the Thompson Okanagan, and Fraser Valley. Winners are named by industry, and organization size, and revenue.

Commercial Building Awards provide a platform for developers, land owners, general contractors and architects to submit projects completed in the prior calendar year for consideration by the judging panel. We use the term “Commercial” as a catch all for commercial, industrial, multi-family, civil (roads, bridges, parks) and community institutional projects. Essentially all projects that do not fall under the single family dwelling or sub-division parameters. Currently we produce these events in: South Vancouver Island, Central/NorthVancouver Island, the ThompsonOkanagan, and Fraser Valley.
