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 Willowridge Developments and Feissty Designs – the 2017 winners! They were presented their ribbons by the Topp Twins and the Upper Clutha A&P Society President Doug Stalker.
