2015 New Zealand International Business Awards finalists announced

International business success comes with a huge amount of blood, sweat and tears but that doesn’t deter some of New Zealand’s most innovative companies from breaking down business barriers offshore. Their hard work gets recognised in the much-coveted New Zealand International Business Awards.

The awards have nine categories in total, marketing being one of them, along with innovation, operations, design, export and leadership. The event is organised by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) and its strategic partner ANZ.

The old faces that made it to this year's finalists list include SeratoZeacomWhereScape, Canterbury Scientific, Yealands Wine Group, SnapCommsMilmeq and Synlait Milk.

Later this month, each finalist will have the opportunity to make a winning impression when they participate in a 30 minute pitching and Q&A session with a judging panel that features some of New Zealand’s top business minds.

The winners will be announced at a black tie ceremony on March 25 at Sky City in Auckland.
