Nominations are now open for the Innovation Awards 2022housing a modernized category line-up, enhanced submission criteria and standout market awareness as Reseller News raises the bar for industry excellence across Aotearoa.
Set for Thursday 27 Octoberthe Innovation Awards 2022 will run as an in-person black tie event to bring the channel together under the Reseller News roof at Cordis Auckland.
In a step away from predictable awards programs, entire local ecosystem expertise will not only be acknowledged and celebrated, but transformative examples of partner best practice amplified further via Reseller News – the leading business technology publication in New Zealand.
Notable enhancements center around the increased prioritization of customer case studies to showcase the innovative capabilities of expert partners, a commitment to expand reach into all regions and a heightened focus on both established and emerging providers.
Mirroring the market, Innovation Awards 2022 will recognize the standout work of managed service providers, system integrators and value-added resellers, complemented by bleeding edge start-ups, cloud specialists, independent software vendors, consultancy giants, boutique agencies and application developers – all collaborating, all contributing.
Likewise, innovation at vendor and distributor levels will also be magnified, recognizing leading champions of the channel, creative thinkers, consistent performers and market leaders.
To achieve this, Innovation Awards 2022 will honor the channel across eight categories, spanning Partner Innovation, Tech Innovation, NZ-wide Innovation, Start-up Innovation, Personal Innovation, Vendor Innovation, Distributor Innovation and Hall of Fame.
Nominations are now open and will run until Friday 12 August. Nominations can be submitted by an individual, an employee, employer or business partner with only New Zealand-based individuals and examples eligible. Finalists and winners are selected by an executive judging panel of business leaders from partner, vendor and distributor organizations.
