NZCS Awards 2020 postponed
The effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community, our industry, and the New Zealand economy is forecast to be significant.
At NZCS we believe it would be irresponsible to carry on planning for a major black tie event as if things were normal. Unprecedented travel restrictions and lockdowns around the world shows that things are far from normal, even if the impact so far in New Zealand appears to be less than other countries.
For this reason, the NZCS Awards 2020 will not be held this year and will resume in 2021.
In the meantime we urge everyone to take play their part to help contain this pandemic.
