The very best of Mansfield’s business talent will be recognised and celebrated at the Mansfield Chad Business Awards next month.

We will be honouring the cream of the world of trade and industry at the John Fretwell Centre, with awards presented across 18 categories.

The winners will be announced at the award ceremony at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex on Thursday, November 26, starting with champagne reception at 6.45pm.

There will be a three-course dinner, with wine, followed by the awards ceremony, hosted by young Mansfield presenter Sam Ogrizovic.
