Rae Finlay, Business Development Manager, Niue Chamber of Commerce commented; ai???the calibre of entries in the 2017 Niue Business Awards was extremely high and it made the judging task a difficult but extremely satisfying one. It was a very difficult job for the judges to narrow down the entries in each category to just two finalists. The judging panel spent many hours reviewing all of the entries and their comments on the individual entries were glowing. We commend all of our entrants for the time and effort they took to enter the Awards, it is a difficult task to document your own success, achievements and future plans, they are all winners for thriving in the private sector and helping to build a prosperous Niueai???.

Winners in each category received a very special trophy as a symbol of excellence and hard work. The Chamber of Commerce wanted something unique and commissioned John Pule, son of Niue, and an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist to create the trophies for the 2017 Niue Business Awards. John created original drawings for each of our Award Winners, and the Supreme Award winner will received an original John Pule painting. Along with the John Pule Trophy each Award winner will receive a cash prize of $1000, a certificate of achievement and a bottle of Villa Maria sparkling wine. Our runners-up each received a certificate of achievement, a $200 cash prize and a bottle of Villa Maria sparkling wine.

The Scenic Matavai Resort rose to the occasion and provided excellent food and service, with wines from our sponsor Villa Maria Wines. The 2017 Niue Business Awards were the first Gala event to be hosted in the new Matavai Conference Centre.
