Taylor Collison has taken on the important role of assessing nominated companies and compiling the Top 100 list to be announced at the event on October 20 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Taylor Collison director Scott Dolling said the move was in line with his company’s commitment to working with South Australian businesses to help them get ahead in a competitive marketplace.

“We are thrilled to be working with InDaily’s SA Business Index and think that this year will produce a very interesting list with so much movement in the market over the past 12 months,” Dolling said.

“We are calling for nominations for eligible companies now and we are sure there will be plenty of new entries for 2016.”

To be included in the Index, companies must have their head office in South Australia, with an Adelaide share registry, or be SA operated, founded and majority-owned by South Australians. Qualifying companies cannot be government-run, agencies of government or a registered charity.

The list includes companies from all major sectors and this year will add awards for the fastest-growing company on the list (in terms of revenue) and best new entrant (highest-ranking company not included last year), plus a Rising Star award for the company that has moved up the rankings the most since 2015.

InDaily publisher Amanda Pepe said the SA Business Index was an important milestone in the business calendar for local companies and a chance to reflect on the positive achievements of businesses in this state.

“As a locally owned and headquartered business ourselves, we know there are challenges associated with doing business in this town. We are keen to uncover the many success stories that might otherwise be untold, and this event is a great way to do that,” Pepe said.

“We welcome Taylor Collison, joining our existing partnership team of UniSA and Adelaide Convention Centre. We’ve also welcomed HLB Mann Judd as a sponsor this year.

“We encourage local businesses to get in touch with Taylor Collison and register their interest in being assessed for the Business Index.”

The 2015 InDaily South Australian Business Index lunch sold out well before the event, with almost 600 business leaders attending to hear Premier Jay Weatherill, Rob Chapman, head of the State Government’s investment attraction agency, and a panel of leading business people and academics including Uber’s David Rohrsheim and UniSA professor Jana Matthews discuss the changing business landscape and how best to deal with it.

The Premier will attend the 2016 event, with the keynote speaker yet to be announced.

Registrations of interest are now being accepted and tickets for the October 20 event are on sale.
