Growing Tomorrow’s Business Leaders

Westpac Auckland Business Awards

Recognising Excellence and Celebrating Business Success

The Westpac Auckland Business Awards are powered by Auckland Business Chamber, and have been a highlight of Auckland’s business calendar for over 15 years.

The high profile awards celebrate innovation and creativity, and are viewed as a badge of excellence in the business sector.

With nine categories of excellence the awards offer recognition for your organisation, while providing the opportunity to benchmark, and gain expert advice on how you can continue to grow.

Celebrate success, ignite passion and determination with your employees, attract new opportunities, and network with likeminded business leaders.  These awards are a platform to showcase your success.

Entries open from early April each year.  Finalist are announced in August, followed by regional gala dinners throughout October, November, and December, then culminate in April the following year with grand gala dinner, Best of the Best.

Any business of any size located in the Auckland area is eligible to enter.
