Nominations are now open for the 2024 Kingston Business Awards, celebrating the best of Kingston businesses. The awards aim to recognize Kingston business community members who have made exceptional contributions through their involvement and leadership in the community.

According to a release from the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce, the Kingston Business Awards are dedicated to recognizing exemplary models of excellence and community service by Greater Kingston’s businesses, and the invaluable contribution they make to Kingston’s economic development, unique character and outstanding quality of life.

The point is, you can’t do much in a day without our local businesses, whether you work for one, own one, or benefit from one. They provide the goods, services, and employment our community needs to function and to thrive. It’s a celebration of those near and dear to us – our local businesses,” stated Karen Cross, CEO of the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce.
