The Liquor Stores Association NSW & ACT (LSA) has announced the Awards Finalists for this year's Retail Liquor Industry Awards for Excellence - the annual awards program that honours and acknowledges the year-round efforts of those who go the extra mile in the retail liquor industry.

LSA Executive Director Michael Waters said: “This year marks the 21st annual Retail Liquor Industry Awards, and on behalf of the Association, I take this opportunity to thank all members who took the time to nominate, as well as congratulate all awards finalists."

Phone interviews for all individual award categories has now commenced, as part of the final judging process.

“Our annual Awards Presentation Dinner continues to go from strength to strength, thanks to the support of our members and industry colleagues, and I encourage those who have not previously attended to make the effort to come along, be proud and acknowledge the achievements of the people and companies in our industry, and enjoy delicious food, excellent beverages, fantastic entertainment and most importantly, great company.
