Napier War Memorial Centre hosts awards event

The Napier Conferences & Events team collaborated with the Hawke’s Bay Chamber of Commerce for the Datacom Hawke’s Bay Business Awards, held at the Napier War Memorial Centre on 17 November. 
The evening featured a formal plated dining experience including the main dish of roasted lamb rump, spice dusted pumpkin, feta cream and chimichurri sauce, catering to the 295 attendees.
The stage setup and triple screens provided a visually appealing backdrop with Stephen Joyce, former Minister of Finance, being MC for the evening. Table arrangements, decorated with greenery, were later passed on to a high school leavers’ dinner event the next night, which demonstrated a lovely nod to community and sustainability.
“Holding the awards dinner at the Napier War Memorial Centre was an amazing experience. The beautiful venue and delicious catering, combined with the exceptional support from the staff, made the celebration truly remarkable,” said Jessica Aguilar, event and social media coordinator for Hawke’s Bay Chamber of Commerce.
Beyond the formalities, the event successfully combined business recognition and acknowledgement of the determination of the business community following Cyclone Gabrielle.
