We are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the 2019 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 Atlanta.

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.

As we are a non-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!

Register for a single ticket - $195 + GST

Register for multiple tickets (maximum of 7) - $195 + GST each

Register a table of 8 - $1460 + GST (SAVE $100)

Your Host for the Evening - Simon McKinney

Simon is an all-round comedy gem. His clean, warm and generous style have seen him become one of New Zealand's leading live comedians and MCs.

Simon's career started in full strength when in 2004 he did a 2-year stint on the UK pro circuit, where he performed at two Edinburgh Fringe Festivals and then went on to do a massive 300 gig run across Britain. We are pleased to announce that Simon will be our MC for this event.
