2019 Business Excellence Awards

The Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Business Excellence Awards. Winners in each of our 16 categories have demonstrated success, innovation and passion in their respective fields.

The Penticton Chamber celebrated the 108 nominees at the “Mad about Plaid” Gala presented by McPhail Kilt Makers Saturday, October 5, at the Penticton Lakeside Resort & Conference Centre East Ballroom. “If you attended as a nominee, it is because the Penticton community recognizes you as an amazing individual, organization or business and thought you were worthy of an Excellence Award!” said Chamber President, Nicole Clark.

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners, and thank you to all those who attended the Gala.
