Celebrating Business Excellence

Grow, Excel & Celebrate!

The aim of the Great Lake Taupo Business Awards is to encourage and support businesses in their quest for sustainable growth, development and excellence. It is important to celebrate the efforts of the business community that ensure the vibrancy and vitality of our region.

The 2019 Business Awards programme has been refreshed to include a more robust, impartial judging process; and offers more support for those seeking guidance with their entry; offering individual mentoring opportunities alongside workshops focused on recognising your business strengths and structuring an award winning entry.

Our Objective:
  • We want to help all businesses in the district to grow, excel and celebrate their achievements with the community.
  • We want to increase participation and engagement with businesses that haven’t taken part in the awards process before.
  • We want to continue to support and celebrate the successes of the businesses that have entered before, but challenge them further.

The awards have always showcased the best we have to offer and the Taupo Business Chamber and Towncentre Taupo want to grow this sentiment.  We need to applaud the successes and create a culture of support, mutual benefits and celebration of the success of all the businesses around us. This process is about celebrating entrants taking the time to develop, grow and accelerate their businesses and entering the awards.


The Awards are a collaborative project delivered by the Taupo Business Chamber and Towncentre Taupo.

The Taupo Business Chamber is a district-wide networking, training and advocacy organisation up-holding the interests of all businesses.
