Cardrona Alpine Re­sort has won Wanaka’s supreme busi­ness award and tourism award for 2017.

The Ig­nite Wanaka (Cham­ber of Com­merce) Busi­ness Awards were pre­sented at Rip­pon Hall on Novem­ber 10 be­fore 200 peo­ple.

The in­de­pen­dent awards panel was Bill Day (con­venor), Anne Url­win, Mark Ver­biest, Giselle McLach­lan and Wayne Hud­son.

All fi­nal­ists demon­strated busi­ness ex­cel­lence but Cardrona of­fered a ‘‘class act’’, Day said.

‘‘Most lo­cal com­pa­nies are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing 20 per cent growth but some are lever­ag­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties into even greater growth.

‘‘Peo­ple are choos­ing clever ways of do­ing things dif­fer­ently, which in­di­cates that our busi­ness com­mu­nity really punches above its weight,’’ he said.

The busi­ness awards were launched in 2016. From now, they will be held ev­ery two years. The next awards will be in Novem­ber 2019.
