The anticipated 2017 Biz X Awards issue (our 200th edition) of Biz X magazine, honouring 24 Windsor/Essex County based businesses and a grand total of 220 nominees is now online and in print for all to enjoy!

A Biz X Award is a well-known local award that is presented to companies and individuals for their hard work, dedication and talent.

Biz X has been honouring the leading businesses of Windsor and Essex County since 1998 with its traditional business awards. With nominations coming in from readers and customers of businesses/organizations, a voting poll via the magazine’s website poll and a panel of judges determining the winners, the awards recognize the cream of the crop businesses and individuals which are believed to be #1 in their respective categories. Since inception, Biz X has handed out more than 660 awards to area businesses and people.

The 2017 Biz X Awards black tie gala took place at St. Clair College Centre for the Arts on November 17, 2017 for the winning companies and VIP guests. The evening featured a gourmet dinner and an awards ceremony (technical services by BigTime Presentations) with an “Emerald City: There’s No Place Like Home” theme and décor by Designs by Diane.

The 2017 Biz X Awards opening reception was sponsored by the Motor City Community Credit Union, featured local foods, and entertainment by Pat Pagano and Nino Palazzolo. The entire event supports Sparky’s Toy Drive with each guest donating a new toy or gift card. Sponsors included The Small Business Centre, St. Clair Alumni Association, Tecumseh Mall and Leon’s Windsor.
