NZ Hi-Tech awards

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

En­tries to the 2014 NZ Hi-Tech Awards closed on 3 March with a record num­ber of en­tries – 38 per­cent up on last 2013.

En­try lev­els across all cat­e­gories were ex­tremely strong with year-onyear growth in eleven out of the 12 cat­e­gories.

“This is a sen­sa­tional re­sult for the Hi-Tech awards,” said NZ Hi-Tech Trust chair, Wayne Nor­rie.

“It's not only a tes­ta­ment to the great talent we have com­ing through, but also shows that our es­tab­lished com­pa­nies are con­tin­u­ing to pros­per here and off­shore. Our lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional judg­ing pan­els now have the mam­moth task of care­fully re­view­ing all these en­tries to come up with our fi­nal­ists.”

The win­ners will be re­vealed on 16 May.

“It's re­ally ex­cit­ing and in­spir­ing to see such sup­port from en­trants, spon­sors and our judges as we cel­e­brate the 20th an­niver­sary of the awards,” said Nor­rie.
