NZ Hi-Tech Awards 2018 - Launch event reminder

The 2018 Hi-Tech Awards will open for entry in just over a month and we're marking the occasion with special launch events for people interested in entering the Awards or nominating someone they think should enter.

Hear from Jen Rutherford, the new Chair of the Hi-Tech Trust - 2018 will see a major push for diversity in the Awards and we want your help to achieve this.

Be inspired by previous entrants, finalists and winners: We've got a great line-up of past Hi-Tech Award winners who will be speaking about what entering and winning a Hi-Tech Award has meant for their business.

Learn from the judges: There will also be an opportunity to hear directly from a panel of our judges on what they look out for when judging the Awards. They'll be providing some great advice on how you can improve your chances of impressing them.
