The PAN PAC Hawkes Bay Business Awards are delivered annually by the Hawkes Bay Chamber of Commerce.

The high profile awards celebrate innovation and creativity in the business sector and have been a highlight of Hawke's Bay business calendar for over 19 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 grow.

The awards bring together Hawke's Bay “business heart.”  The ceremony, in conjunction with a Gala Black Tie Dinner, has been a highlight of Hawke's Bay business calendar for over 19 years, and are widely acknowledged as very special nights of networking, storytelling and celebration of success.

Entries open from early July each year and culminate with a dinner in December.

From small to large, retail to manufacturing, our Hawkes Bay businesses play a vital part in the community and the region's economy.  The PAN PAC Hawke's Bay Business Awards is designed to celebrate excellence among those businesses.

The award judging culminates in a fantastic Black Tie Dinner on Friday, 1st December 2017 where the winners are announced.

There is no charge to enter and if businesses need help getting organised, the Chamber offers workshops and has business advisors who offer entry application support.
