BUSINESS. Twenty companies and four personalities from the business world will compete for top honors at the twelfth edition of the gala of excellence organized by the Brome-Missisquoi Chamber of Commerce (CCB-M) and presented by the Desjardins Group.
The event organizers plan to award one prize for each of the following eight categories: new business, retail business, service business, professional services business, art, culture and tourism business, non-profit organization, manufacturing business of 1 to 25 employees, manufacturing company with 26 or more employees.
Six recognition prizes (innovation, citizen involvement, sustainable development, resilience, company of the year, personality of the year) will also be awarded.
The company of the year will be chosen by the members of the jury, while the personality of the year will also be determined by public vote. To vote, simply go to www.ccb-m.ca by May 23 at the latest.
A distinctive gala
The gala organizers did not skimp on resources and promise participants a recognition evening that they will remember for a long time.
This major biannual event will take the form of a cocktail reception featuring local products. The meeting will take place on Thursday, June 9, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the lake chalet of the Bromont tourist resort, montagne d’experiences.
It should be noted that the honorary presidency of the 12th gala of excellence was entrusted last March to Robert Desmarais, director general of the MRC and the CLD of Brome-Missisquoi.
