The 18th NOVA Business Excellence Awards are set for tonight.

Unlike other years, this awards presentation is a virtual one due to COVID-19, and will air on both Eastlink television and online at starting at eight o’clock.

There will be a total of 16 different awards handed out in various categories. Camp Nova is this year’s theme and businesses that were chosen as finalists were handed care packages that consisted of fun camping items so small watch parties could be held. A pre-reception party is taking place on Zoom for all of the finalists starting at 7:30.
