Nzone finishes year on a high

Queenstown tandem skydive operator Nzone (n-zone) is sky high with delight after winning Queenstown's Business of the Year Award last night (Nov 16).

The award was presented at a black tie dinner for the Queenstown Business Excellence Awards, in association with the Queenstown Chamber of Commerce.

Nzone won its category, the Skyline Restaurant, Gondola & Luge Excellence in Tourism Award, and capped off the evening and the year by winning the title Queenstown's Business of the Year.

Commenting from Auckland where they were attending the NZ Trade and Enterprise Export Awards, both Lindsay and Robynne Williams, Nzone’s Managing Director and General Manager were jubilant.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be singled out as one of the best businesses in Queenstown. This award is a credit to our Nzone team and the many suppliers who have assisted our development. We’re elated to see adventure activities being recognised at the core of Queenstown business.”

Nzone has experienced a year of strong growth, which the company attributes to capitalising on changing trends, and recognising continued growth in the independent travel sector. Earlier this year Nzone won the New Zealand Tourism Industry Association’s 2007 ‘Supreme Award’ as well as winning both the Adventure and Visitor Attractions and Activities sections.

Nzone was the first tandem skydive operation in New Zealand and the first to be awarded Qualmark endorsement at both its Queenstown and Rotorua locations.

“Undoubtedly skydiving will always be edgy, adrenalin fuelled and personally challenging adventure. This industry is our passion, and that’s true for every single one of our team; how we hope we differ is by making sure that passion consumes our customers too.

Nzone was one of three finalists in the ‘Excellence in Tourism award category. The company beat stiff competition from Shotover Canyon Swing and Nomad Safaris.
