Finalists announced in 2010 City of Sydney Business Awards

City of Sydney Business Awards for 2010 attracted more than 520 businesses  with nearly three quarters of them being first time nominees. 

More than twice as many members of the public have nominated their favourite business for this years awards and over 41,500 votes have already been tallied – an 18 percent increase from 2009.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP said the record participation in voting and nominations showed small and medium businesses play a pivotal role in the City of Sydney.  “There are 18,000 small and medium businesses in the City centre and its surrounds and the City of Sydney Business Awards are a chance for us to recognise how important these businesses are to the vitality and viability of our city,” Ms Moore said.  “Our small and medium sized businesses help to make Sydney the economic heart of Australia and are a significant contributor to the economic health of the City, our state and the nation.”

Two new categories have been introduced in the 2010 City of Sydney Business Awards, with 13 nominations received for the new Bicycle Business category. It recognises the City’s commitment to supporting businesses linked to the City’s plans for a connected cycleway network.

10 nominations have been received for the new Small Bar category, reflecting Sydney’s growing small bar culture and the hunger for alternative venues to large clubs and pubs.

“The 2010 City of Sydney Business Awards give businesses the opportunity to market themselves, reflect on their success and look at ways to remain competitive. I look forward to celebrating with the winners in September,” Ms Moore said.

The six businesses with the most online or SMS votes in each category have now qualified as finalists (full list overleaf).  Following a stringent judging process, winners will be announced at the 2010 City of Sydney Business Awards Gala Dinner hosted by David Koch on Monday 20th September 2010.
