The City of North Bay and Northern Ontario Business will host the 27th Annual Northern Ontario Business Awards (NOBA)
The City of North Bay and Northern Ontario Business will be rolling out the red carpet on October 3, to meet and greet the best and the brightest risks takers and success stories across the region.
The awards were last held in North Bay in 2008, therefore we are excited to welcome over 500 attendees to the community, for this event and look forward to showcasing our talent and attractions in the hospitality sector.
The strength of the awards applications are often a stepping stone for those firms and individuals to gain wider national and international recognition.
The event will feature ten winners along with the Union Gas Essay Scholarship Winner.
“NOBA really is the Academy Awards of Northern Ontario. Being a black-tie celebration of the North's entrepreneurial elite, it is also a back-slapping gathering of the region's business, community development and political 'movers and shakers.' This is the gathering place they come to once a year to meet old friends, but it's also an event where professional bonds and relationships are created. I know of million dollar deals that happened at NOBA and successful business partnerships that have formed,” said Patricia Mills, publisher, Northern Ontario Business.
“On behalf of City Council and the citizens of North Bay, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to all participants of the Northern Ontario Business Awards. It is an honour for the City of North Bay to be hosting this year's awards ceremony,” said Mayor Al McDonald.
The Networking Reception will be held at Canadore College, Aviation Campus on Wednesday October 2 from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
On Thursday October 3, the Awards Gala Dinner at 6:30 p.m. will be celebrated at Nipissing University, Robert J. Surtees Student Athletics Centre.
