Given the high volume of applications, the organisers of the Business Awards of Macau announced this week that the deadline will be extended to September 15 to allow latecomers to join the biggest professional recognition programme in Macau. All nominations, with supporting materials, must now be received by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 15, 2017.
Now in its fifth year, the Business Awards of Macau is the most prestigious awards event on the business calendar, and is firmly established as the first recognition programme for Macau’s local and international business sectors. A team of distinguished judges is currently preparing to undertake the crucial task of evaluating the entries to short-list awardees.
“We have been striving for four years to recognise the excellent achievements and contributions made to Macau by local enterprises, entrepreneurs and organisations,” said Business Awards of Macau Director Victoria Man. “In this regard, we are happy to discover new Macau talent and the surprising success and potential of innovative made-in-Macau products.”
The finalists will be presented at a prestigious Gala Ceremony on November 24 in the Grand Ballroom of the Grand Lisboa. Up for grabs is a maximum of 40 Excellence Awards and 11 Gold Awards, judged by an independent panel of jurists comprising acclaimed entrepreneurs, academics and professionals invited from different sectors of Macau society.
The event organisers are being advised by an Honour Commission and an Advisory Board, the membership of which was publicly announced in August.
“It is particularly pleasing for us to see the Business Awards growing with Macau,” Ms. Man added, “as each year more and more Macau local companies win awards, expanding their businesses from Macau to China and other countries. In the meantime, the Awards have become increasingly influential in both the local and international business sectors of Macau.”
