About the Westpac Champion Business Awards
Celebrating the best of Canterbury Business
The Westpac Champion Business Awards recognise and celebrate the excellence, innovation, and success of businesses and charities in the Canterbury Region. The Awards programme culminates in the largest business awards ceremony in New Zealand with numerous high-profile guests in attendance.
We’re proud to have celebrated Canterbury business excellence, innovation and success for 15 years. Over that time we’ve hosted over 15,000 attendees, acknowledged 650 finalists, and celebrated 240 winners.
The awards are a 6 month journey starting with nominations and entries, that culminates with one amazing night that showcases and celebrates Canterbury’s best emerging and established enterprises. As the largest and most prestigious regional awards ceremony in New Zealand, we continually attract over 1200 attendees to the awards ceremony and engage with so many more in the lead up to the night.
We are extremely proud that the Westpac Champion Business Awards are seen as the crème da la crème of Business Awards across New Zealand, and the bench mark for others to aspire.
The Awards region is defined by the Canterbury Regional Council boundaries, which includes nine District Councils and the Christchurch City Council.
