In honour of its 30th anniversary, the Proserpine Entertainment Centre will host this year's event.

Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited (WMDL) Chief Executive Officer Danial Rochford said the annual event was a great occasion to celebrate the many achievements of the local business community here in the Whitsundays.
"It is a great opportunity to dress up for the occasion with our theme paying tribute to the 61 years of service to our region by Queensland Rail's legendary Sunlander Train," he said.
"So all up, it will be a massive night of celebrations."
Mr Rochford said the awards night had been opened up to the wider business community this year and that he was proud to say there had been a large increase in applications compared to previous years.
"Nominations have come in from right across the region and we are excited to announce the winners and finalists on the night," he said.
