Entries for the 2013 Westpac Central Auckland Business Awards are now open. All Auckland Central businesses are invited to enter one of the eight categories. The Excellence in Export category, sponsored by Ports of Auckland, invites companies who currently export to demonstrate their export achievements, growth and results to the judging panel.
Chamber of Commerce international manager Fuimaono Tuiasau is keen to ensure that Auckland exporters are aware of the opportunity to enter.
“Business who have entered these Awards in previous years have really benefitted from standing back and reviewing their business. We can help potential applicants with the entry process and have mentors and facilitators from Advantage Business who can guide entrants in completing their entry forms. Winners of the export category last year, Les Mills International , were also the Supreme Winner and received publicity as well as recognition for the strong presence they have developed globally,” he said.
Ports of Auckland CEO Tony Gibson reiterates this viewpoint.
“There are some fantastic export success stories in Auckland, and we need to hear more about them. This award is a great opportunity for businesses to get their story out.”
