For the first time since the start of Atlantic Business Magazine’s Top 50 CEO awards 17 years ago, the awards gala is moving outside of Nova Scotia.
“We are very excited to announce that Atlantic Business Magazine’s 18th annual Top 50 CEO awards gala will be held in Greater Moncton, New Brunswick on Thursday, May 12, 2016,” said Hubert Hutton, Publisher of Atlantic Business Magazine. “We are the region’s leading business magazine, hosting the region’s premiere celebration of corporate leadership excellence. It only makes sense for us to expand the regional footprint of this signature event.”
“New Brunswick was an obvious choice for our next location,” noted Tonia Sheridan, Atlantic Business Magazine’s Vice President of National Sales. “Not only is the province in general home to a vibrant business community, but Greater Moncton in particular has been a significant supporter of our publication. Plus, the majority of Atlantic Business Magazine’s New Brunswick Top 50 CEO Hall of Fame inductees are based in Moncton.”
“We are delighted that Atlantic Business Magazine chose to host its 2016 Top 50 CEO Awards Gala in Greater Moncton,” said Ben Champoux, CEO of 3+ Corporation, the economic development corporation for Greater Moncton. “This is very fitting, as Greater Moncton’s entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude are very much in line with this prestigious event.”
This high-profile red carpet gala, which past attendees have compared to the Oscars, brings hundreds of senior business and industry leaders, as well as a quarter of a million dollars in revenue, to its host city. It is also live streamed on atlanticbusinessmagazine.com , delivering national and international recognition for the host venue.
