Business Hawke's Bay

Business Hawke’s Bay

Making sure that Hawke’s Bay has the right climate for businesses to thrive and grow is the mission of Business Hawke’s Bay, our region’s business-led economic development agency. 

As Hawke’s Bay’s gateway to world markets, Napier Port is passionate about our region, and the businesses that help it flourish. We’re a proud partner of Business Hawke’s Bay, and support its efforts to build the capacity and capability of Hawke’s Bay businesses, and provide meaningful connections to help lift our region’s economic performance.

Napier Port works closely with importers and exporters across a range of industries to understand their shipping and commercial needs. We’ve built a wealth of insights into what global markets expect, and into what makes Hawke’s Bay an attractive export business base. And we want to make sure every nugget of knowledge counts.

Business Hawke’s Bay has a strong focus on business, skills and investment attraction – part of its brief is to promote Hawke’s Bay as New Zealand’s best regional location in which to work, invest, live and grow. So we work in partnership to highlight the region’s broader offer and share our insights with businesses interested in relocating here.

Hawke’s Bay Business Hub

Located in Ahuriri, just along the road from the port, the Hawke’s Bay Business Hub provides training, support, growth advisory services and connections to unleash business potential. 

We’re a strong supporter of the Business Hub initiative, established by Business Hawke’s Bay. The Hub’s fully-equipped meeting and conference rooms are available for hire for business presentations and networking events for up to 60 people.
