With a record number of entries, the Air New Zealand Cargo ExportNZ Awards 2019 will certainly celebrate the best of Northland, Auckland and Waikoto’s exporters.

The Awards celebrate the success of New Zealand businesses on the world stage, recognising professional excellence, innovative practice and leadership through vision, commitment and success. These companies help grow and transform the New Zealand economy with exceptional export success in international markets. The Awards are organised by ExportNZ, with the support of Strategic Partner Air New Zealand Cargo.

Entries closed Friday, 15th March and the judges now have the privilege of meeting and understanding fantastic companies in our regions that support the growth and prosperity of our regional and national economy.   Their vision, passion, courage and sheer hard work is an inspiration to all of us and it’s very rewarding to provide a forum such as the ExportNZ Awards where we can share and celebrate their success.

The Awards provide a fantastic networking platform, attracting a wide range of attendees, including finalists, previous winners, government, media, plus industry and business leaders. Each guest will receive a 20-page gala dinner programme which will detail the full guest list by table number.  This has proven to be an invaluable tool to facilitate networking throughout the evening.

This year we present nine awards for export excellence:

1. Best Emerging Business for Goods exports

2. Best Emerging Business for Services exports

3. Best Medium Business for Goods exports

4. Best Medium Business for Services exports

5. Best Large Business for Goods exports

6. Best Large Business for Services exports

7. Excellence in Innovation

8. Exporter's Champion (for exemplary services to export)
