Awards management

The Conference Company’s sister organisation, The Awards Company, offers a comprehensive awards management service, from design to delivery. The only company of its kind in New Zealand, it is run by a specialist team expert in the art and science of industry awards.

The Awards Company can help you create and launch a new awards programme or develop and streamline your existing awards. We take an independent ‘outsider’ role in the management of what can be highly sensitive industry events.

  • Awards programme design and development
  • Development of entry and judging criteria
  • Awards marketing and entrant communications
  • Customisation and branding of entry interface
  • Secure online entry upload, review and scoring system
  • Database management and technical support
  • Online and ‘hothouse’ judging coordination
  • Award ceremony and event production

Specialist awards management expertise

Awards programmes present a unique and complex set of challenges, as anyone who has ever tried to organise one will know. Our highly experienced team understand precisely the technical and logistical demands of these specialised projects.

We know that accuracy, confidentiality and failsafe IT systems are imperative in the management of awards entries. Finding no adequate solution on the market, we have developed our own sophisticated online awards management system to ensure we can deliver these.

Our awards management team

Our awards team is led by our Awards Manager Jennifer Donaldson and supported by Sara Hutchinson, our Awards Coordinator.

When it comes to the presentation ceremony, our event management  team can stage a magnificent event as a fitting finale to your awards programme.
