The Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards launched in 1996 and in 2021 we are celebrating our 26th year. Primarily beginning as a vehicle to recognise family business, the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards have developed to now encompass a category for almost every type of business enterprise.
Today, the Awards seek to contribute to the self-image and identity of Gold Coast business and to foster pride in this business community. They also seek to highlight the growing importance of the Gold Coast as a business hub and recognise leading businesses with a view to encouraging others. The Awards and all intellectual property fall under the ownership of the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards Association Inc.
This is the second year that TechConnect has entered this award and are thrilled to have won the first month (May) in category of IT & Digital Business. We would like to extend a congratulations to all the other winners and a massive thank you to the sponsors and organisers. We look forward to the annual awards later in the year and competing with some of the amazing businesses on the Gold Coast.
The IT and Digital Business Award, sponsored by Griffith University, is the recognition of Gold Coast businesses demonstrating outstanding knowledge management based, information technology products and services. Applicants should highlight their smart technology product or service and how it benefits everyday life and impacts the businesses bottom line. Today we live in the Information Age. Knowledge management underpins almost all services today, and the effective management of knowledge distinguishes companies in IT, supply chain management and logistics. Excellent information technology, knowledge management and digital services based businesses may exemplify this in their own business, or enable and enhance the practices of other businesses through their IT, logistics or supply chain solutions.
