2022 NZ Hi-Tech Awards – Finalists Announced

A record number of new companies entered the 2022 NZ Hi-Tech Awards, from across the country and from all areas of the hi-tech sector. This depth is reflected in the line-up of finalists this year, according to David Downs, Chair of the NZ Hi-Tech Trust, who says the standard of entries continues to grow every year as does the overall interest in the awards.

“This year’s finalists span the full spectrum of the hi-tech sector and the country, the level of innovative tech products and solutions continues to astound us all. It’s awesome to not only see the quality of the entries but also the diversity amongst the entrants, particularly in a year which again has been so challenging”. says Downs.

Several of the local and international judges have commented that the quality of the entrants is at an all-time high this year along with the volume of entries across many categories. They predict that the next phase of judging will prove even more challenging as they select the winners from such a strong pool of finalists.

“Despite the continued impact of COVID and ongoing challenges around the skills shortage, the tech sector continues to lead the way in putting New Zealand well and truly on the global map. It has proven its resilience and is at the forefront of our export economy both in terms of the jobs being created and in regard to the revenues it’s generating for the country.” says Downs.

The 2022 NZ Hi-Tech Awards Gala Dinner will take place on Friday 5 August 2022 at TSB Arena in Wellington.
