25th Annual Awards Ceremony

The Business Excellence Awards have been celebrating the best of the Kingston business community since 1995. These organizations are the innovative leaders and driving force behind Kingston’s

vibrant economy. 

The Business Excellence Awards are the pinnacle event of the Kingston business calendar. Kingston’s outstanding businesses (from large corporations to solopreneurs) are recognized at a gala event, celebrated in media and throughout the Chamber’s network for the rest of the year.

This year we will be introducing a hybrid event format, with pre-recorded, live and in-person components to keep you engaged. Join us Thursday, September 30th, for an exciting evening celebrating Kingston's finest businesses and entrepreneurs.
