“This is going to be a fantastic year,” says Horst Feldhaeuser, Board Member, Research Association New Zealand. “We’ve introduced three new categories to ensure our RAEAWARDS continue to develop alongside global and local trends and emulate the way our members and clients conduct their business activities.”

The new awards categories are…

International Award
For New Zealand based research, data and insights agencies or clients working in at least one international market.

Community Advancement Award
For work conducted primarily for the greater good of the profession or the wider community.

Sustained Success Award
For work over a minimum of 3 years, showing how an ongoing project or relationship leads to success.

Mark your diaries for the professional insights industry’s big night out! The awards will be presented at a black tie evening at the Hilton Auckland, 2 September 2016.
