MEDIA RELEASE
Xero Partner Awards Recognise Outstanding Performance in 2013

22 February 2014

Online accounting software leader Xero is thrilled to announce the winners of the New Zealand Xero Partner Awards for 2013.

The awards, presented at Xerocon New Zealand 2014 last night, Xero’s annual conference, recognise and celebrate organisations for the outstanding and innovative provision of Xero services and corresponding delivery of high quality marketing.

Founder and CEO Rod Drury says, “The Xero Partner Awards are an opportunity for us to acknowledge the increasing innovation and enthusiasm of small business experts in New Zealand.”

“We share a customer-focused approach to business, shaping our respective and collective technology to assist customers in growing their businesses. Those partners recognised tonight stand out as major contributors to New Zealand’s future.”

This year’s Xerocon NZ 2014 conference attracted over 900 attendees from the accounting, bookkeeping and software development industries. The two-day conference laid out Xero’s product roadmap for the year ahead, current thinking and a strategic update from a local and international perspective.

“New Zealand’s small to medium enterprises consistently punch above their weight both in New Zealand and beyond. Xerocon seeks to enthuse and educate partners so that they may continue to grow and provide efficient and effective assistance to small businesses,” says Drury.

Xerocon conferences will be held this year in Sydney, London and San Francisco. It is the largest event of its type in New Zealand and becoming one of the biggest industry events in each region Xero operates in.
