17 April 2019

The word is out…

Have you always wanted to walk your own red carpet, see your name in lights, and mix with the stars? Well your time is now, our new theme for the 2019 Bay of Plenty ExportNZ awards is “a Night with the Stars” (exporting stars that is!). We bring you a night filled with old-school Hollywood glitz and glamour, Oscar worthy award entrants and a night of celebration of Bay of Plenty exporting prowess you won’t forget!

Our MC for the evening will be the much acclaimed Nick Rado, a multi award winning, presenter, producer, writer, MC and stand-up comedian with national and international success in TV, Radio and Stand-up comedy. Nick is currently the Head Writer for TV3’s Award winning panel show 7 Days and is a 4 x winner of NZ Comedy Guild Best MC so we are in for a great night!

Dress up in your glad rags or as your favourite Hollywood star, get the team together and snap up your tickets for a wonderful night showcasing the exporting ‘Stars’ coming out of our region.

If you’ve been thinking of submitting an entry, it’s time to jump on this, you have until 5pm Friday 17th of May to get these in- feel free to give Joanna in the ExportNZ BOP office a call for assistance with your entry!

We will be hosting an event on the 23rd of May to announce the 2019 Finalists, so stay tuned for your invite to this networking event.
