Waikato to celebrate export successes with new Awards programme

The Waikato Export Awards are making a comeback next year to celebrate the achievements and courage of the region’s exporters.

Export New Zealand and EMA Waikato chairman, Jack Ninnes says, “It’s not easy dealing with customers in different cultures or doing business in countries with different languages, regulations and laws.

“The Waikato Export Awards are to showcase the region’s export businesses that demonstrate their ability to operate successfully in these difficult environments.

“For example sometimes it can be a trial to get paid on time or get paid at all.

“Add to the mix the challenges presented by New Zealand’s sheer distance from offshore markets and you can imagine it takes skill, tenacity and courage to succeed on the international stage.

“Exporters create new jobs and wealth for New Zealanders while earning the foreign currency we urgently need to pay for our imports, and we want to salute them, and their employees and businesses.

“So, after several years’ break during the global economic crisis, we are thrilled to announce we are running the Waikato Export Awards 2013 again next year.

“They are to be launched at the ExportNZ/EMA Waikato annual dinner and AGM this evening. Entries are now open, and will close on March 22nd, next year.

“The Waikato Export Award categories are:

v The Gallagher Exporter of the Year Award
v Emerging Exporter of the Year Award
v Innovation in Export Award
v The BNZ Service to Export Award

“Anyone can enter their own company or nominate another company they respect for making a mark in exporting.”

“For further information please contact Lotta Bryant at the ExportNZ Waikato office on phone 07-839 2710 or email lotta@exportnz.org.nz to receive an awards entry pack or to have one sent to your nominee.

“The finalists will be filmed for profiling at the Awards gala dinner where the winners will be announced in Hamilton on Friday, May 31.”
