“I’m The King Of The World”


“I’m The King Of The World”

Who wouldn’t want to yell this famous phrase from the movie Titanic” after winning a big award? Of course earning an award is only a small reward for all the hard work an individual, company or organization has done. Obviously the biggest payback is repeat business from customers/clients or even helping the local community prosper. However, it is still a great feeling to actually win.

This is one of the reasons why our annual awards Biz X Awards edition was created as we are proud of our region’s businesses and organizations and our nominees too.

This issue and our accompanying gala is a massive undertaking, but it’s definitely worth it.

We enjoy receiving all the emails and comments from our readers and supporters about how important the Biz X Awards are to the community. And I love to hear the winners giving their acceptance speeches on stage!

You are now reading our 220th issue, which is one of our biggest in pages, tied only with our 2009 Biz X Awards edition. So, since we are in a celebration mood, we want to kick start our editorial with some great news in the local tourism industry — and that’s always good for business!
