Trade Exhibitor of the Year Awards
Every trade exhibitor has the opportunity to win the Wanaka A&P Show Trade Exhibitor of the Year Award. There are two categories every year, one for small exhibitors and one for large exhibitors. Winners are judged on the amount of interest created in the exhibit, eye-catching aspects, originality, staff presentation, service and how the information is conveyed. Judges also consider how much impact an exhibit makes in relation to the size of the trade site, plus the level of interaction with customers.
Every trade exhibitor has the opportunity to win!
Congratulations to Mitre 10 and Be Sure Insurance – the 2018 winners! They were presented their ribbons by Mark Sainsbury, Upper Clutha A&P Society President Doug Stalker and Jane Stalker Event Manager.
