"All finalists in each category are announced, with their picture shown on the big screen.
"It's heart-warming to hear the deafening cheers from the crowd as everyone celebrates the achievement of all the businesses in the room.
"It's also a chance for business people and their teams to reflect on their successes with a fun night out."
Mr Loe said Fairfield business night of nights is always a popular event.
"It's a glittering event that gives finalists a chance to dress up and take a break so they can enjoy an evening of entertainment, good food, relaxed chat and celebration with their colleagues and people from other businesses from around the district," he said.
"It's with great pleasure that I congratulate all the finalists on their achievements, on behalf of the Fairfield City Local Business Awards.
