The annual ANZ Export Awards, celebrate New Zealand’s exporting excellence and will be held in all five Export New Zealand regions this year – Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Wellington and Canterbury - with presentations taking place at Award Gala Dinners during May and June.

The range of awards recognise growth and achievements made by innovative companies looking for a gap in the marketplace and entries cover a vibrant mix of successful export businesses.

"The annual ANZ Export Awards recognise excellence among our exporters, giving the winners the confidence to set higher goals," says ANZ Head of Trade and Transaction Services, Graham Mills.
"It is always a privilege to work alongside dynamic companies who can visualise their ambitions and the means of achieving them. At ANZ we’re delighted with our long partnership with the export industry. We're looking forward to seeing this year's crop of nominations."
