Nelson Pine Industries Chamber of Commerce Business Awards

The annual Nelson Pine Industries Chamber of Commerce Business Awards recognise innovation and creativity in the business sector, and this year we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary. To mark this significant milestone we’ve made some changes to the categories to recognise and celebrate all aspects of business excellence in our community.

The Chamber of Commerce Business Awards are a highlight of Nelson Tasman’s business calendar. As well as providing exposure and recognition for your organisation, the Awards provide the opportunity to benchmark your business and gain valuable advice on how you can continue to grow.

The Awards bring together our region’s business heart. The black tie dinner on Friday 2 November is widely acknowledged as a very special night of networking and celebrating success.

Take some time to familiarise yourself with the Awards Categories and the process for entering by using the menu links on the left hand side of this page. Any business of any size in the Nelson Tasman area is eligible to enter. There is no entry fee and the Chamber offers businesses helpful advice to get organised.
