Business awards set to return in October

return in October The 2020 Business Excellence Awards gala will return in Brampton on Oct. 20 in an exciting new online format, the Brampton Board of Trade announced Monday. Respecting pandemic restrictions, the 2020 Business Excellence Awards will allow attendees and award-recipients to enjoy the excitement from the comfort of their home.

The gala will provide all the same excitement with some new fun virtual twists. Attendees will log-in and experience familiar elements including: a pre-event ‘cocktail’ party and networking, entertaining hosts, inspiring speakers, innovative category contenders, unique entertainment, lively music, and a sensational live auction. Attendees will have the option for a dinner ticket — where a delicious meal will be delivered to their door.

The very special evening will be a commemoration of hardwon achievements, mind-over-matter execution, and surmounting significant risk. The Brampton community’s resilience, generosity and ability to overcome exceptional circumstances will be acknowledged and celebrated. The highlight of the evening will honour and celebrate William E. Johnston, Founder and President of Bramgate Automotive Inc. who will be awarded the distinction of 2020 Brampton Business Person of the Year.

“With the Brampton business community relying on one another now more than ever, we know this event will be a welcome reunion and celebration in five months time,” said Board of Trade CEO Todd Letts. The deadline to submit nominations has been extended to June 30, and both application information and ticket details can be found at
