Heart Behind the awards

The CBD Awards serves the purpose of recognising and celebrating the fabulous businesses based in Hamilton’s central city, who are doing some really cool things, to make our CBD a destination.

We encourage the participation of businesses and their customers who are integral to the success of our central city. The focus of the awards is on tactics and initiatives that have continued to make a business successful, particularly during the challenges of the past few years.

Recently described by a renowned journalist as “The CBD Awards programme is very much around what makes your business ‘fizz’!”
