New Zealand Events Awards 2017 winners

The New Zealand Events Awards programme celebrates boundaries pushed, benchmarks set and innovations achieved in hosting events countrywide, according to Andy Scotland, the chair  of the organiser of the awards, the New Zealand Events Association (NZEA).

 “Events make a significant contribution to the economy, enhance New Zealand’s cultural status and provide locals and visitors alike with the opportunity to expand horizons and enjoy themselves,” she added.

 “I’d like to congratulate the winners on their achievement, having emerged from a stronger field than ever to demonstrate excellence and the world class standards that local events are achieving.”

 This year, five new categories were introduced to further celebrate and recognise the companies, personalities and contributors to the events industry.
