A win for you is a win for us all.

As an exporter, you’re achieving incredible things – every moment, of every day – somewhere in the world. Each time a client discovers your clever, ingenious solution, you’re building our reputation as a country of innovators. Every time a consumer buys your exceptional products, you’re showcasing the best of us to the world.

As an exporter, you’re enriching our businesses, our communities, and our country. In 2022, you helped create more than $83 billion* in export earnings for New Zealand.

You also inspire the next generation of New Zealand businesses, as they embark on their own export journeys. We are thankful for everything you do.

The New Zealand International Business Awards (NZIBA) is the opportunity to share your story, so that we can celebrate together.

Because when you win, we all win.

Ehara tāku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini.
My strength is not as an individual, but as a collective.
