Celebrating New Zealand Tonga Business Excellence Awards

We are excited to announce that we will hold another Celebrating New Zealand Tonga Business Excellence Awards dinner to take place on November 1 2019 at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland City.

We expect to welcome over 200 guests to this event including senior representatives from companies such as Pacific Direct Line, Tanoa Group, Fonterra and more.

The 2017 dinner was our inaugural event with over 250 guests and over 10 award recipients proving a great success.

This dinner will also coincide with celebrations for Tonga National Day and the Oceania Cup weekend.

The Celebrating NZ Tonga Business Excellence Awards dinner gives companies the chance to build awareness for their organisation and to be closely associated with a highly successful and important event.

Ensure that your organisation is at the heart of the industry in both Tonga and New Zealand.
