2017 Awards for Excellence - now open


Entering our Awards will be the best decision you've ever made!

All too often we are so busy being busy that we don't take time to consider how good we actually are. This is where Hospitality New Zealand steps in to acknowledge and celebrate industry excellence.

2017 is the 20th year that Hospitality New Zealand has run a highly successful industry Awards for Excellence programme. These Awards have served winners and finalists well, resulting in national media coverage, as well as, thousands of dollars of marketing and promotional opportunities that most businesses simply can't buy.

What's on offer?

We are delighted to have a premium suite of 20 Awards; three overall category winners and one supreme winner on offer in 2017. The prestigious Awards for Excellence gala dinner takes place on Thursday 19 October at Te Papa in Wellington.
