A big congratulations to all those who entered and qualified for the WARSB Awards through their hard work carried out for the Margaret River Region 2014 Business Awards.


Now in their 12th year, the Western Australian Regional Small Business Awards showcase the best regional small businesses from across WA. Since 2003, the Awards have celebrated the success and achievements of hundreds of regional small businesses.

Throughout the year, Regional Chambers of Commerce and Small Business Centres from across Western Australia hold their own award programs to recognise excellence in their respective regions or towns. Winners of these programs then have an opportunity to nominate for the Awards and to be acknowledged as the ‘best of the best’ in their field.

Congratulations to all this year’s finalists.

Many high quality applications were received and the Small Business Development Corporation is delighted that the following small businesses, representing regions from across Western Australia, have been named as finalists:
