Announcing the finalists for the 2009 National Business Awards

The annual National Business Awards, in association with Topco Media's South Africa's Top Performing Companies publication and South Africa's Top 500 Companies is set to take place on Thursday the 30th of July at the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg. “This year's awards attracted over 200 entries with motivations from some of South Africa's finest organisations, resulting in the 12 categories having between four and six finalists for judges to choose from,” said Sue Gannon, the Event Manager for the awards.
The awards ceremony is sold out in terms of guest tables. “We could not have reached this high level of participation and attendance without the support and guidance of our partners, including Airports Company South Africa, Iskhus Power, Virgin Active, Appletiser and Business Report,” concluded Gannon. With over 500 of the country's captains of industry and Government leaders attending the Awards, the event will once again be an outstanding networking opportunity. For more information about the National Business Awards, please call Laura Barker on 021 791 7100.
