New Zealand Event Association's 2018 Awards

18 December 18

Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow has been named as a finalist in two categories for the New Zealand Event Association’s 2018 awards.

The 30th Anniversary Airshow held at Easter this year has been named as a finalist for the Best National Event 2018 award and Event Manager, Mandy Deans is a finalist in the Best Event Professional award.
Warbirds Over Wanaka General Manager, Ed Taylor, says this year’s Airshow was a great success and ‘being recognised amongst the best in the country by our peers is the icing on the cake’.

“New Zealand has some pretty amazing events and we’ve always known that we’re up there with the very best.  Our 2018 Airshow was pretty special for a number of reasons and that’s why we decided to enter these awards.”

“I’m especially proud of our Event Manager, Mandy Deans, being named a finalist in the Best Event Professional award category.  Mandy has lived and breathed our event for the past ten years and has been integral in helping make the airshow the success it is today,” says Ed.

New Zealand Events Association Chair, Graham Rouse, congratulated the Awards’ finalists and said “our finalists have demonstrated outstanding vision, innovation and results. This, combined with sustained growth in the volume of awards applications we are receiving year on year, is a really positive indication of the strength of the events industry in New Zealand and the positive impact that it has on people, communities and the economy.”  Competition for this year’s awards was fierce with a third more entries than in 2017.  The 2018 winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland early next year.
