Business Port Macquarie proudly launched the first Greater Port Macquarie Business Awards in 2007, as a way of formally acknowledging the growth and success of businesses in the Greater Port Macquarie region. Today, the event has become a favourite on the local social calendar and a valued opportunity to celebrate the contributions and excellence of our business community.
