It's one of the publishing industry's biggest nights and tickets to the 2011 Magazine Awards are now available. So pry open your wallet, air out your glad rags from the musty wardrobe and get ready to celebrate the best in the words and pictures business on Thursday 23 June at The Pullman Hotel in Auckland.
If you want a partner to come along and marvel at all the awards you pick up, discounted double tickets are on offer for $314 + GST. Single tickets are $165 + GST. And a table of ten is going for $1500 + GST.
The MPA has negotiated special room rates at the Pullman this year so you can continue to celebrate after the band has gone home. And it can even match you up with "compatible table mates" by request. Be still our beating heart.
In most instances, losing an item is little more than a frustration, but it can be quite a major problem when the said item is a credit card. Usually, the relisation that a credit card is missing is followed by about 20 minutes of manic searching, 30 minutes of concern about where you were pick-pocketed and then the painful recognition that you'll have to cancel the card for security's sake. Then, once the card is cancelled, nothing is quite as annoying as finding the now useless piece of plastic lying in your wardrobe. And given that its app helps users avoid the panic, ASB has released a new spot that takes a quirky look at a more relaxed search for a lost card.
