Awards a success!
Business Link Media Group celebrated the accomplishments of Niagara’s next generation of business leaders.

More than 300 attendees joined the Business Link Media Group in celebrating the achievements of Niagara’s 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Award recipients on May 15, 2014 at the Holiday Inn & Suites in St. Catharines. Jack Peets, Host of the 105.7 EZ Rock Morning Show, was the MC for the evening and highlighted the achievements of these 40 incredible business leaders.

The 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Awards recognize Niagara’s next generation of business leaders. The 40 recipients are under 40 years of age and consistently make their mark in business and contribute regularly to their respective communities.

This year's event was buzzing with excitement as recipients and attendees took social media by storm and landed the #40u40Niag in the number three spot on Trends Map Canada's Local Trends list.
