[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the 2018 Peter Jowett and Industry Awards event. It is time to book your seats and look forward to quality presentations and the awards event recognising excellence in the Convenience Industry.

Be sure to come to the afternoon session with our young leaders in the industry all presenting on the scholarship topic, competing to win one of two trips to the NACS Show in Las Vegas. Our entrants are working hard in the hopes of becoming one of the 5 finalists to present at the Peter Jowett Scholarship afternoon. We rely on members in attendance to cast their vote for the winning presentations.

Last year we had enquiries for partners or family members to be able to attend to support our Peter Jowett Scholarships so as a result, we would like to extend an invite to them to register under the company involved for the afternoon session and the Awards Dinner. 

This year we have decided to make a few changes to our Events. We will be holding this event at the sophisticated Stamford Plaza with what promises to be a great night of fun and entertainment. So please come along and support your association. 

As we are a not profit association we would welcome sponsorship for this event. So if your company would be willing to sponsor or be a co-sponsor of our pre-dinner Cocktail function please email
Please register early as seats are limited. 

When:   Thursday 12 July

Where:  Ballroom at The Stamford Plaza, 22-26 Albert Street, Auckland

What:    We will have Peter Glass, Head of Sales Imperial Tobacco, and NZACS Vice Chairman as the MCs for the afternoon event, followed by the awards dinner and evening entertainment.
