The Pitch Hokitika

The DWC Pitch business networking event was held in Hokitika on December 6, highlighting some of the region’s inspiring new businesses.

Thirteen presenters gave quick-fire four minutes pitches about their businesses before enjoying a networking session and an amazing meal courtesy of the Regent Theatre Café and Fresh
Vibe West Coast.

The evening was emceed by Mayor Bruce Smith and the night ended with a vote for the best pitch, which was won by Andrea Rogers (aka the Crafty Chook). She took home a
promotional video courtesy of Weka Films, printing vouchers from Printing.com West Coast and an advertisement in the Hokitika Guardian.

The next Pitch event will be held in Greymouth around April. Register your interest: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
