Our networking events offer an opportunity to engage with the business community and build strong relationships in the region. Some of our key networking events include:

  • Business after Five (Ba5) events are held monthly and is a great way to connect with other members over a glass of wine. Ba5 events are generally hosted by a member and allows the opportunity for the host business to promote themselves, their services or products.
  • UnWined is a forum for members to share their thoughts and ideas on key topics facing the Queenstown business community. The conversations that come out of these events ensure the Queenstown Chamber continue to stay connected to the issues that matter to members and help shape the advocacy work that we do.
  • Speedy Connections is a structured business networking event designed to build local business connections and develop new skills in a fun and supportive environment. This event is an opportunity to gain confidence in pitching your business or service.

Business Awards

The bi-annual Business Awards bring the business community together, celebrating and recognising achievement, innovation, and the amazing businesses we have here in the region. This is your opportunity to show why your business is special and cheer for those doing well. In the year following the awards we host the Business Excellence Series where we invite the sponsor and category winners of the awards to share their stories and expertise.

We are proud to present the Business Awards for 2023, stay tuned for further information
