What an extraordinary night in an extraordinary year!

This year’s Fremantle Business Awards 2020, themed FEAST, achieved a record number of just under 60 nominees, gathered 220 of Fremantle’s Business Leaders in the room and generated 1,698 votes in the People’s Choice Awards.

The judges all commented on the exceptional calibre of nominees this year – a true representative feast of the diversity, abundance, achievements and talents of businesses in Fremantle and surrounds.

It celebrated the end of 2020 – a period of extraordinary change and circumstance. It demonstrated the crucially important role that the Fremantle Chamber has to bring together our business community and provide an active voice for business.

I am enormously proud of the passion, vision and hard work of those businesses that we highlighted tonight, but also the many others that make our great Port city the place it is to do business.

All submissions showed a strong sense of focus, willingness to take new risks and adapt to the new world we find ourselves in. Strong themes around sense of place, environment and strengthening community ties were evident in all nominees this year.

All of the nominee businesses are incredible in their own right – and not all made it into the list of finalists. I encourage you to investigate each one of the businesses in our winners circle and nominees noted below and find ways to continue to support our local business leaders and this exceptional talent that we have on our doorsteps.

The Fremantle Chamber of Commerce is actively connecting, uniting and assisting in the growth of a successful and vibrant business community that builds on Fremantle’s unique advantage, its heritage and its maritime focus. The awards showcased in a way like no other.

Thank you to all who helped make this event what it was – our Board, our staff, our judges, our sponsors, our incredible suppliers and our nominees.
