Ara Business Excellence Awards 2020 have been postponed until 18th June 2021.
Allowing our businesses to recover and rebuild in the post COVID environment, the 2020 Business Excellence Awards has been postponed. The Ara Business Excellence Awards recognises the excellence, innovation, and success of businesses and charities in the South Canterbury region.

The Ara Business Excellence Awards recognizes and celebrates business excellence, playing an important role in promoting and strengthening economic development in the region.

Entering these prestigious awards provides you and your team with a rare opportunity to take a step back from day to day operations and review your business from a fresh perspective.

Past winners have found the entry process not only highly rewarding and motivating, but also of immense strategic value in positioning their business for long-term, sustainable growth.

Entrants benefit from significant local media coverage, with category and supreme winners able to leverage their success in on-going advertising and communications activity well past the immediate event period. In addition to the benefits for businesses, the awards play an important part in lifting the overall profile of South Canterbury, raising awareness of our business sectors for the economic benefit of all South Cantabrians.
