Traditionally the Bathurst Business Awards is a glamorous occasion, with some of the city's best businesses coming together for dinner, live music, dancing and the awards ceremony.
But on Tuesday evening the norm was thrown out the window, with this year's awards streamed live through the Bathurst Business Chamber Facebook page due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This year's Business Awards featured just the one category - the People's Choice Award - with Industry Training and Assessment Services taking home the honours.

Business owner Kylie Johnson said it was really "exciting" to receive the People's Choice Award.

Since moving to Bathurst, Ms Johnson said her business has grown rapidly.
"I started up here five years ago when we moved up to Bathurst from Sydney and it's grown and grown," she said.
"I have returning clients every three years for the full first aid course and then I have some coming back every year to renew CPR.

Some of her clients include Dedicated to Fitness, Scott Mitchell Plumbing, Mayfield Garden, Orange Family Physiotherapy, Jenny's Kindergarten, CityFit and Russell Street Medical Centre.
Bathurst Business Chamber president Catherine Fitzsimmons spoke during the live announcement for the awards, saying the chamber is here to help all Bathurst businesses that are in need.
"Whether you're a member or not, we're here for you," she said.
"We want to know what your concerns are, what's working for you and what's not working for you.
"We'd love for you to become a member, but most importantly, we'd love for you to talk to us.
"We love to know what's going on for businesses in Bathurst, so we can be your voice piece.
"We've done very successful for many industries and businesses in the past and we want to that in the future."
