A record number of entries have been received for this year’s Development West Coast Leading Light Business Excellence Awards. The team of 13 judges from across New Zealand has begun their assessment and finalists will be announced later this month.

DWC chief executive Chris Mackenzie says as always the calibre of entries is very high and the judges will have a tough job to make their decisions.

“This event is always a highlight on the DWC calendar and an inspiring celebration of the people who work hard to make the West Coast region prosper. I look forward to hearing who has taken out the top honours.”

The 2018 Development West Coast Leading Light Business Excellence Awards will be celebrated at a gala dinner at Shantytown on Friday 26 October.
