QNF 21st Annual Newsagent Awards Night
Saturday 19th of May saw Brett Muggeridge (Jenlist QLD Representative) and myself attend the 21st Annual Queensland Newsagent Awards night, held at The Sebel Citigate King George Square in Brisbane.
It was a great night for newsagents to network and be honoured for their success in the industry, as well as recognising longstanding newsagents who have been involved in the QLD Newsagent Industry for the past 21 years to be honoured for their commitment and service.
I was fortunate to present the Jenlist Distributors sponsored award for Best "New Technologies" Newsagent of the year. Where newsXpress Darra took out the award, ahead of fellow finalist Agnes Waters Newsagency.
Congratulations to Luke and his team for winning this prestigious award, I wish you all the best for the ANF National Awards being held in Brisbane in July. I'm sure with results like your facebook page reaching 17,000 facebook users, you will tough to beat.
