Hawke's Bay Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce that for the sixth consecutive year, PAN PAC Forest Products Ltd has chosen to be the naming rights sponsor of the PAN PAC Hawke's Bay Business Awards 2022.

The Business Awards are about inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs, the people either setting up new businesses or buying existing businesses. 

If we inspire 10% of the 19,000 businesses in Hawke's Bay to raise their game by just 2%, the result will be a 380% increase for our region.

Whether sales, exports, or profits, it all adds to a healthier and wealthier Hawke's Bay commercial sector.

Award winners tell a story about a commercial environment that is attractive to entrepreneurs and businesses looking to reverse urbanisation, matched with the lifestyle Hawke's Bay offers.

The PAN PAC Hawke's Bay Business Awards is a credible and positive way to profile and inspire the future of Hawke's Bay business.
