WSABE welcomes back Commonwealth Bank as Principal Partner and the City of Parramatta Council is now Major Sponsor for WSABE. Category Sponsors include TAFE NSW, Dooleys Lidcombe Catholic Club and Westfield Parramatta. 
Western Sydney Business Access and SBS are again the event’s media partners.

The Parramatta Regional Awards for Business Excellence were established in 1991 and transformed into a fully regional awards program in 2009 when the program was renamed the Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence. 
Established by the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, the awards are not voted on, rather, the winners are determined through rigorous assessment conducted by a panel of highly qualified and respected judges. 
This merit based process ensures that victors are determined solely on the extent to which their business activities weigh in comparison with a set of pre-determined criteria for business excellence.  
If you would like to align your business with this prestigious event, please contact Romina on romina@parramattachamber.com.au or 9635 0022 to discuss sponsorship opportunities for WSABE 2017.
