The Westpac Rotorua Business Awards are delivered annually by Rotorua Business Chamber.  The high-profile awards celebrate innovation and creativity in the business sector and have been a highlight of Rotorua’s business calendar for over 20 years. As well as offering recognition for your organisation, the awards provide the opportunity to benchmark and gain expert advice on how you can continue to prosper.

This year we have reshaped the awards to reflect the current environment, recognising and celebrating Rotorua's resilience during this difficult time. 

Tickets are on sale NOW and the awards ceremony will be Saturday 31st October 2020.

In recognition of the present working environment, this year we have made entering a really simple process. Anyone can nominate any organisation as an entry. There are no lengthy forms to complete and the judges will decide the winners by interviewing the nominees.
