Supporting and celebrating local business

Entries open 1 August

Let's come together

The 2022 Mornington Peninsula Business Excellence Awards will recognise innovation, sustainability and excellence across businesses of all types. It's a chance to showcase the excellent work that local businesses do.

The awards offer local businesses the opportunity to come together after the past two years of COVID-19, celebrate the wins, inspire and network with other business owners and share achievements with the local community.

Any business operating in the Mornington Peninsula Shire municipality is eligible to enter. Whatever the business size, this is a great opportunity for the Shire to support the local business community and honour the successes. Entries open 1 August 2022, and close 12 September 2022.

These will be one of the most highly regarded awards that businesses can receive on our Peninsula. This is why your business should be involved. Chat to our Economic Development team to discuss your eligibility. Phone: 03 5950 1446 or send us an email.
