2017 Finalists

Picking a supreme winner from a top line-up of the Wellington regions businesses will be a tough call for judges at this year’s prestigious Wellington Region Business Excellence Awards to be staged at the Expressions Arts & Entertainment Centre, Upper Hutt on Friday 3 November 2017, says Chief Executive Mark Futter of Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce the event hosts.

“The black tie event will be attended by more than 400 guests and will be a true celebration of business enterprise in the Wellington Region. There is a lot of interest from across the Hutt Valley and the greater Wellington region in the awards which acknowledge excellence by companies, organisations and individuals who have made a significant contribution to business activity throughout the Hutt Valley and Wellington region during the year. The successful companies and individuals named as this year’s finalists have set the standards for others to follow and emulate,” he says.

Congratulations to the Wellington Region Business Excellence Awards 2017 Finalists.
