Geraldton Chamber of Commerce Business Gala Awards

One of the priorities for the Geraldton Chamber is to create events where the local businesses can communicate and network with each other. The main idea for the Business Gala Awards was to create a social networking event for the businesses of Geraldton to celebrate their successes throughout the previous year.
