Stars set to put in an appearance
WELL-KNOWN members of the Rose City business community were spotted scouring costume racks of shops and seeking inspiration from glitzy television hosts for this year's night of nights.
Hollywood will well and truly be alive tonight at the sold-out 2011 Heritage Business Excellence Awards, with category sponsor Seth Jameson of Zooma Signs looking forward to his first awards.
Pulling out his iPhone, he'd snapped a screenshot of Australia's Got Talent presenter Grant Denyer, determined to recreate the look of the popular telly host for the evening.
“I reckon the nice shirt and suit will fit in well with the Hollywood theme,” Mr Jameson said, who also specially-designed some Hollywood-inspired signs to decorate King's Theatre.
“The theme this year is quite fun and it was great to get involved and have a bit of fun with it.”
Zooma Signs is sponsoring the Processing/Manufacturing/Construction category, which shines the spotlight on three well-deserving finalists.
“(Tonight) is really a night where people can let their hair down but also acknowledge all the businesses who've done a great job throughout the past 12 months,” Mr Jameson said.
“It's so hard and challenging running a business so when you do something right it's great when your town acknowledges and celebrates that.”
