THE carpet is ready to be rolled out to welcome Leeton's top notch businesses on Saturday night.
The Leeton Business Awards - "The Walters" are set to recognise companies, small businesses, individuals and teams who have achieved and exceeded.
It is the first time the awards have been held since 2016 and night of fun, laughter, recognition and good company is planned.
Tickets are no longer available for the event, with a crowd of more than 220 already locked in to attend the Gatsby and art deco-themed night at the Leeton Soldiers Club.
Co-ordinator by the Leeton Business Chamber, president Wayne Bond said the final touches were being added to make it a night to remember.
"We had such a good response from both businesses throughout the shire and the wider community when it came to nominations this year," Mr Bond said.
"I think people enjoyed the format we used.
"We ended up with many, many finalists, which was great."
Some of the awards are also still aligned with the NSW Business Chamber system, meaning those who take out any of those categories will be eligible to progress on to the regional competition level.
Some won't be linked to that process and others have been added to ensure a broad cross-section of the business community can be honoured for their hard work.
This will include a "top tradie" trophy, an outstanding woman/women in business accolade, as well as the traditional Irrigator Roll of Honour award, which is similar to a life membership-type honour.
Similar to the Logies - the "Gold Walter" will be awarded to the Leeton business of the year.
Those attending the gala evening have been encouraged to dress in their Gatsby best, but if this isn't something they feel comfortable in, business attire is also suitable.
Several surprises, including entertainment will form part of the night's proceedings, as well as a delicious meal.
"We're all really looking forward to it," Mr Bond said.
"It's going to be a great night and we can't wait to start handing out these awards."
Doors will open from 5.30pm, with canapes and entertainment to kick the night off from 5.45pm before the official business gets underway.
