The Greater Westside Board of Trade is excited to celebrate excellence on the Westside this year more than ever before!

West Kelowna, B.C. – The Greater Westside Board of Trade is looking forward to celebrating outstanding businesses across the Westside in a new way this year. While the 2020 Annual Key Business Awards won’t look the same for 2020 and cannot be in person, businesses, business owners and staff still deserve to be celebrated on November 26, 2020 for their success in these unprecedented times.


The annual awards recognize businesses, organizations and individuals located on the Greater Westside, who have achieved excellence in the community through their own abilities, efforts, and initiatives. In a year of challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event provides an opportunity to highlight and recognize the West Kelowna and Westbank First Nation business community and the incredible individuals contributing to our community’s response and recovery!


Nominations are now being reviewed and candidates will be notified at the end of the month. Finalists will be announced via Zoom on October 27 and the Awards Gala Video Presentations will be held on November 26 with a Zoom After Party to celebrate and congratulate the Award winners.

“The yearly Key Business Awards have become iconic and a symbol of the vibrant and thriving business environment in West Kelowna and is a major deliverable to our membership,” says GWBOT President Craig Garries. “Although this year’s event will be different than those in the past due to Covid restrictions, we are already seeing a strong response for nominations in all categories and this year promises to be our biggest year ever.”
