Marlborough Business Excellence Awards
Recognising and celebrating the brilliance of local business.
From large companies who have relocated their head office to the region through to lone-wolf entrepreneurs doing business out of their bedrooms, our place is filled with inspiring, influential individuals all working together to help our region thrive.
The Marlborough Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards are about shining a light on every corner of our region’s business community. Whether you’ve been in business for 12 months or 12 years (and some), this is your time to reflect on your business and be recognised for where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re planning to go.
This is more than a celebration – this is an opportunity to test yourself and your business, to benchmark yourself against the best of the best, and seek opportunities for growth and development.
The event has a prestigious reputation for its trusted judging process and the quality of entrants. It is one of the many ways that the Chamber supports and champions local business in Marlborough.
We welcome you to contact our Membership & Events Manager Zoe Gray at any stage of the process.
