BELMONT small businesses “having a go and achieving greatness in their preferred fields” are being encouraged to take part in the region’s 23rd annual Small Business Awards.

The awards were launched at the City of Belmont Civic Centre last Wednesday and attracted a host of well know business people and councillors.

Belmont Business Enterprise Centre chief executive officer Carol Hanlon said it could help small businesses build their profiles and brand awareness.

“Entering the awards offers an opportunity for small businesses to promote themselves and evaluate their business from a variety of perspectives,” Ms Hanlon said.

“Establishing yourself as an award-winning organisation is a great way to motivate your staff, improve relationships with customers and suppliers and strengthen your position in the industry.”

The 12th Designedge Innovation Festival 2016 was also launched at the event. It will will include a WA Designer Parade and the Spirit of the Streets Choir.

Ms Hanlon, who is also the founder of the awards, said they were open to business statewide.

“It’s a pleasure to be promoting small businesses that are having a go and achieving greatness in their preferred fields,” she said.

Nominations will be open until September 27.
