Business After 6

The Ignite Wanaka Chamber of Commerce hosts monthly business networking and social evenings called Business After Six. Each month a member host invites others in the community to hear about their business, providing drinks and nibbles in a social setting. It’s a great way to meet others in the community, catch up with friends and work associates.

Please email naomi@wanakachamber.co.nz if you are interested in hosting an event in 2019.  Get in quick as this is a popular event and a list already started of interested hosts.


B@6 with Wanaka App and Federal Diner

6pm, Weds 31 October at Federal Diner

Federal Diner


We’re excited to collaborate with The Wanaka App for this month’s BA6. Join us at Federal Diner and we’ll spill the beans on what we’ve been up to, our recent restructure and our exciting plans for the future. We would also like to share with you our involvement in creating awareness of sustainability throughout the Hospitality sector; something we are very passionate about.

Along with the Wanaka App we will be putting on canapes from Fedeli along with local wine and beer. Federal Diner will be open for dinner after the event if you’d like to stick around and sample our new Spring diner menu.

Business card draw – WIN a voucher for an evening meal for 2 at Federal Diner.

The Wanaka App
We’re delighted to work with Federal Diner and have this opportunity to showcase our recent platform upgrade and provide some insight into the media industry and our plans for the future.

Early indications are that the new Wanaka App will increase reach and increase the number of times a user is on the app, as well as increasing time spent. We’ll also let you know about two more cities launching on our platform.

It’s always great at Federal Diner and we hope to see you there.


22- Nov AGM – Followed by B@6 – New location TBA
