Designed to be reflective of Gwinnett and the metro Atlanta area, the Gwinnett Chamber IMPACT Regional Business Awards recognize leading organizations in top industries that are driving economic development and job creation, while enhancing the area’s quality of life. This event is truly one of a kind as it brings together leaders from the AEC, higher education, healthcare, hospitality, information technology, international business, nonprofit, service, and small business industries.
Stan Hall/Mitsubishi Electric Classic (Hospitality winner)
The mission of the Gwinnett Sports Commission (GSC) is to foster economic development through coordinating and developing Gwinnett’s role as a leading site for sports events involving youth, collegiate, amateur and professional organizations. The Commission owns and operates The Mitsubishi Electric Classic, a premier golf tournament on the PGA TOUR Champions which will return to the metro Atlanta area in Spring 2019. This tournament features legends of the game such as Tom Watson, Miguel Angel Jimenez, and Bernhard Langer. The Mitsubishi Electric Classic features events and activities that provide an all-inclusive, entertaining atmosphere accompanied by the beautiful views of TPC Sugarloaf which serve as a backdrop for this world-class sporting event. The tournament is much more than a golf event. The Mitsubishi Electric Classic, which benefits local charities through the Gwinnett Championship Foundation Inc., has raised over $1.8 million since the first tournament in 2013. All three rounds of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic are televised internationally by The Golf Channel.
