It was an evening of glitz and glamour with a large virtual audience comprising of 53 finalists, 22 sponsors, 29 judges, staff, plus the public. A terrific turnout to celebrate the excellence of the Rotorua business community.
Tompkins Wake warmly congratulates the 2021 winners and acknowledges every business that entered the awards. We commend you all for having the courage to put yourself forward and recognise your success.
While it’s not clear how many more months of disruption we have ahead, the resilience and strength shown by the Rotorua business community is truly inspiring and represents everything that makes doing business in the region so special.
