The 2018 Hi-Tech Awards will open for entry at the beginning of December and we’re marking the occasion with special launch events for people interested in entering the Awards.

This year we’ve got three launch events in Wellington, Christchurch, and Auckland – we would love for you to join us.

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.

The art of the entry form: We’ll be running a session on tips and tricks on writing a great entry – learn why many companies fail at the first hurdle with a poorly written entry.
