Lord Mayor's Welcome Message

The Lord Mayor’s Business Awards has become the premier way of showcasing the excellence, success and innovation of Brisbane’s business community. 

In 2023, the awards will celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit that’s driving our $181 billion economy and shaping vital cultural and social change.  

We are determined to make Brisbane Australia’s most business-friendly city; a destination where leaders are supported to grow, evolve, and market their brand to the world.   

For nearly two decades, the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards have been a crucial platform to showcase and champion our city’s best and brightest, giving them the confidence and encouragement to reach their most ambitious goals. 

This year we’re rewarding businesses breaking the mould through the new Business Transformation category, for businesses with game-changing strategies and initiatives that showcase innovation and technological achievement.

If you’re thinking of applying - please don’t hesitate. We urge businesses of all sizes, and all purposes, as well as exceptional individuals from all backgrounds, to stand up and be counted for an outstanding contribution.  

As we head down the green and gold runway to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we want to make sure local businesses have every opportunity to shine and help build our city’s legacy.

Brisbane Lord Mayor
