Business Appreciation Awards Luncheon

In 1997, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance began the well-known Business Appreciation Week tradition. Each year, one week is set aside for the Commonwealth of Virginia and all of its communities to recognize the numerous contributions of the business community by saying, “Thank you!” Stafford’s Economic Development Authority has never missed a beat. For more than 15 years, the EDA has hosted a celebratory luncheon open to all members of the Stafford business community and their various partners at the Riverside Dinner Theatre and Conference Facility. This year is no exception. Mark your calendars today for the 2013 Business Appreciation Week Luncheon, or just go ahead and RSVP! We hope to see you there!

Business Appreciation Awards


In 2012, the EDA began its own business appreciation tradition by introducing the Stafford ‘Entrepreneur of the Year Award’. This year, the EDA is growing its awards program by adding a second award opportunity: ‘Best Place to Work’. Nominations may be submitted by company representatives, or third parties. While awards will not be issued based on industry, the EDA will issue two awards per category based on company size. Companies with fewer than 25 employees and with more than 25 employees will be recognized for each award. View the applications and apply at the links below. Only companies with Stafford, VA location will be considered.
