Calgary businesses saluted at Calgary Choice Awards Gala

Calgary’s thriving entrepreneurial, small business and media community was buzzing on March 2 at the 4th Annual Calgary Choice Awards Awards Gala. It was an evening of celebration for 20 lucky award recipients and for the nominees who attended.

Congratulations to a few of our tourism partners in winning a Calgary Choice Award!

Best Restaurant – River Café
Best Venue/Tourist Attraction – Heritage Park Historical Society
Best Hotel/Inn – The Fairmont Palliser Hotel

More than 467 businesses were nominated in 20 categories this year. All nominees were notified of their nomination and provided with a Calgary Choice Awards marketing tool to help them promote their business to their contacts, friends and family during the four-month voting period.

The Gala evening encompassed the glitz and glamour of a Hollywood awards gala including a gourmet dinner, a red carpet arrival with photos, live entertainment, a fabulous silent and live auction, local celebrities, and a Calgary Choice Awards Ceremony hosted by CTV Calgary’s own Jocelyn Laidlaw. The winners in each of the categories were presented with an engraved Gold Star Trophy.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
